Here’s a wonderfully animated example I scanned of Gus Mager’s Hawkshaw the Detective. See previous entries I’ve made about Mager here. Notice how much the art looks like a Rudolph Dirks’ Katzenjammer Kids strip? That’s because Mager was Dirks’ assistant.
Can anyone out there name all the characters in the footer bar?
Note that this strip contains offensive racial depictions, as was typical of the comic strips of the era… if you are deeply offended by that sort of thing, you may not want to view it.
