The comics

Feb. 23, 1908
Los Angeles

It's Sunday in 1908, and The Times publishes its weekend features, including the comics. Here's "Buster Brown" one of the most prominent strips of the era. It featured young Buster, who loved to play practical jokes, and his dog, Tige. Note that the artist got a full page and, of course, the pages were much bigger then--ample room for the artwork.
