HEY! KIDS! COMICS! : F.M. Howarth in Scribner’s at Unattended Baggage : January 16th, 2008

STWALLSKULL'S HEY! KIDS! COMICS!

TODAY’S FEATURED ITEM:

Unattended Baggage brings us some rare F.M. Howarth (author of the wonderful Lulu and Leander strip which I have featured numerous times on this site) cartoons from Scribner’s Magazine. See them here and here. Both Howarth and Frederick Opper (Happy Hooligan) were magazine cartoonists who adopted a simpler style for their transitions to the newspaper comics page (not that Howarth’s style ever looks simple)… I wonder if this was a common phenomenon at the time?
