Crumbling Paper: The Crumbling Paper Index

I’ve added a much-needed index to my various Crumbling Paper posts here, which can be accessed from a link on the right side of the page. Here are the contents of it so far:


Here’s an index of old cartoonists and strips which have been featured on this site under the heading of CRUMBLING PAPER. Most of these links feature scans I’ve made of ancient comics, some over 100 years old, that generally have not been reprinted anywhere since their initial publication. This list will be gradually updated as I post more comics.

IMPORTANT NOTE: MANY of these comics contain offensive racial and ethnic depictions, as humor based on these subjects was the norm with comics at the turn of the last century. If this sort of thing offends you, you may not want to view some of them. I’ve tried to remember to note when this is the case. For more on my views on this subject, please refer to this post.
