W.O. Wilson's The Wish Twins and Aladdin's Lamp is a strange little strip from the early years of the previous century. Were it not for the fact that it predates Little Nemo by a year, I would assume it to be a knock-off of sorts. Wish fulfillment and kids is a given in the world of comic strips, and here we have it at its most literal: two kids wishing on a magic lamp. Unfortunately for us, these kids are not exactly the most imaginative children one could hope to meet. But don't let me sour you on it, take a look for yourself starting with the first strip.
