Dreams do come true! It seems like only yesterday I was wondering what those “lost” Dreamy Dave strips might be like and now they’re here for everyone to enjoy. They are pretty much what you’d expect, though the jam page above is a very nice surprise, complete with a photo of Charles H. Wellington (among others). The new Dave strips start here.
Also featured in the above are characters from Dink Shannon’s Sammy Small, as well as his Mr. Pest – Book Agent, John E. Bernier’s Peter Barnum Botts, Ed A. Goewey’s Do You Remember Your Kid Days?, Johnny Gruelle’s Cousin Bud, and Wellington’s Grandma’s Girl.
Frederick White kreated kute kitties for the kiddos and then konkluded it would fun to kill them off daily. Enjoy.
Featuring Charles Dana Gibson, James Montgomery Flagg, John T. McCutcheon, Orson Lowell, R. F. Outcault, George McManus, E. W. Kemble, F. T. Richards, Wallace Morgan, and W. A. Rogers.
This one is long overdue; tonight is the grand opening of our Charles Dana Gibson archive! To honor an artist of this stature, we’re kicking it off with a complete 24 part story: A Widow and Her Friends. This story was originally published at the turn of the century, but I luckily stumbled upon a weekly reprint from 1913. This series of illustrations was extremely popular in its day; it’s not hard to see why. Enjoy!
Featuring John T. McCutcheon, Tad Dorgan, Carey Orr, Clare Briggs, E. A. Batchelor, Hal Coffman, Jack Callahan, Tom McNamara, George Herriman, Harry Hershfield, Cliff Sterrett, Fontaine Fox, Jean Knott, Rube Goldberg, T. E. Powers, and Nell Brinkley.
Just in case you needed some more Denslow.
After finding those Rawhide Bill strips, I went hunting for some info on Heppner Blackman but I wasn’t expecting much…I certainly didn’t think I’d come across biographical details AND a photo! Plus we get Winsor McCay, Norman Jennett, Clifford Sterrett, Clarence Rigby, George Westcott, John P. Collins and Garnet Warren as well? Jackpot!
Just wanted to share a little piece I found on James Montgomery Flagg. Perhaps we’ll be seeing more of his work soon..?
