    The “several” in the caption above is an understatement. The Comic Strip Library has twelve subsequent Nemo pages from the Herald (up to 23-Jul-1911). Unfortunately, neither the artwork nor the coloring in these 12 pages come anywhere close to the complexity that we’ve seen here lately.
    CSL continues (seamlessly) with Nemo as it appeared in the New York American, starting on 3-Sep-1911, in which the artwork seems to return to form.

    While I am very thankful for all of the effort that went into this feature, I think it would be more “appropriate” to continue up to the end of the 1911 run in the Herald, rather than making an arbitrary decision based on personal preferences about content or the characters. Let readers decide for themselves!

    Perhaps it depends on where you live, but those trenches still exist. Our kindergarten just took delivery of several tons of gravel to fill up four of them.

    I’d go with George III, it’s rather well-known that he was insane.

    Why didn’t this summer re-run provoke such a flame war the FIRST time it ran? (See: 18-May-2016.) Is it because of the Olympics in Rio? Or just offensive American electioneering?

    A kinder and gentler age, before pranksters started writing “Kick Me!” on the cards they attached to the victim’s back.

    So far I have seen five cartoons (four of them on the same day) that make fun of the plagiarism issue, but all of the others used Lincoln’s “Four score and seven years ago…”. In comparison to that , there is a certain brilliance in quoting Porky Pig.

    Checking the dates reveals that all three cartoons were published on the same day (July 20th). Lead times are much shorter for editorial cartoons, but not that short. In addition, the settings and implications of each of the three cartoons are completely different. Given the canonical nature of the Lincoln quote, it’s much more likely that this is just a coincidence.
