Origins of the Sunday Comics
by Peter Maresca
This is where it all started!
From the Yellow Kid and the Katzenjammer Kids
to Little Nemo and Little Jimmy,
these are the origins of the American comic strip,
created at a time when there were no set styles or formats,
when artistic anarchy helped spawn a new medium.
This series will present the earliest offerings
—from 1895 to 1915—
of the famous and lesser-known cartoonists
who were there when comics were born
—over 150 creations from more then 50 superb artists,
most reproduced here for the first time in over 100 years.
