Crumbling Paper: The Love of Lulu and Leander (1903) by F.M. Howarth (strip #1)

Here’s a fun example of F.M. Howarth’s strip The Love of Lulu and Leander by F.M. Howarth from 1903. Lulu and Leander is apparently one of the earliest domestic strips. The big-head artwork for this strip is pretty bizarre. Click the image to read the strip.

You can see more examples of this strip (and many other classic comics) at Barnacle Press.

Here’s what Don Markstein’s Toonopedia has to say about Lulu and Leander.

Here’s an article on Howarth.

I have scanned a LOT more examples of this strip coming soon to this blog.
