The printing was weak on this original material and it was tweaked as much as possible to make the image stronger. Sadly, these pages are so rare that it was difficult to find a replacement.
Glad you enjoyed it! It’s one of my favorites from them days.
Artists shared a page as early as 1899. Mixing characters in a story was done by the Hearst stable of artists in 1902.
Hey! Trudeau swiped this gag from “Little Nemo.” WInsor McCay broke the fourth wall with the “where’s the color” bit 100 years ago!
Sadly these travel pages ended here on April 23, 1911. Nemo never did get to Milwaukee. Next Sunday will be the final page of this series.
This appears to be human error – should be fixed presently.

Clarification: “full color,” as seen in most of the comics in this feature, is using all four printing colors at the time – red, yellow, blue, and black. in order to save time and ink, some inside section pages were only printed in one, two, or as with this page three (red, yellow, black) colors.
