Professor Wayupski flies into the archive!

Albert Bloch’s Professor Wayupski ran just three weeks starting May 25, 1902 and we have ‘em all for you! He has to be one of the first comics characters to fly an airship, and maybe the first to fly to the moon? This panel is from a Sunday page dated June 1, 1902 which puts it a few months ahead of the release of Méliès’s Le Voyage dans la Lune. How can this be?? Historians weigh in here please.
