    Let’s count all of the things you could NEVER put into a comic strip in 2013 that are drawn big as life here in this strip from 1896!

    Endless blatant stereotypes (and some bullying) but zero segregation… interesting for those who tend to assume that the two go hand-in-hand.

    Use the zoom feature and then click on the pic to zoom more. Its kind of grainy. I just appreciating the artwork and the politically incorrect drawings. Bet the Libs are having a fit with this one.

    There always seems to be a girl with a big hat, the amount of content is amazing, seems like some of the strips for “Girl Genius” took after this.

    “Libs” are actually the most open minded and tolerant. It’s the thin-skinned that you’re thinking of. But, hey, who am I to stand in the way of your misguided rant? Now, go yell at some kid to get off your lawn!

    Being of Irish descent, I know about the jokes of that time. Personally I think they are still funny. BTW, I may not be a Lib, But I’m no Con either. Just keep the playing field level. I think thats what they were doing back then.

    Outcault was a genius. I hope you’ll share these, and all the other early comics with your friends. The history of comics is a wonderful, rich field.
