  1. Thank you for posting all of these! You have a great site! Have you come across a comic strip called The Smythes by New Yorker cartoonist Rea Irvin?

  2. Thanks Paul! I don’t have any Smythes strips, but Cagle sure does…

    Great stuff there! Apparently there are more of them in Hogan’s Alley #13, which I haven’t scored a copy of yet (it is a great publication if you haven’t seen it)… these examples are web extras.

    Lambiek has this on the strip:

    Here is an interesting article from a 1930 issue of Time Magazine on the new at the time strip:,9171,739658,00.html
