In my never ending quest to bring more cowboys to the site, I lassoed a big name: Lariat Pete! Who? Okay, the real draw here is George Herriman who spent a few months in 1903 bringing the adventures of Pete and his nephew to the funny pages. I always enjoy seeing early work from such a highly regarded artist; this one fits chronologically between Two Jolly Jackies and Major Ozone’s Fresh Air Crusade. Apparently there is Lariat Pete who predates this one by D. McCarthy, but I have yet to get my hands on one of those pages (I’m guessing it’s merely coincidence, but I suppose there is a chance it could be the same character). At any rate, enjoy this little known western strip from the great George Herriman!
