Comic strips have been popular with Americans from the early 1900s. When we think of comic strips today, most of us focus on the Sunday funnies because they're printed in color. But the artform dates back much further to daily newspapers and monthly magazines. Comics were so popular in the 1930's and 40's, that when there was a newspaper strike in New York in 1945, then-Mayor Fiorello La Guardia took to reading them on the radio. Many comic strip characters like Betty Boop and Flash Gordon were so popular that they were featured in cartoons and movies. We hope you enjoy these examples of classic comic strip art that we offer for sale.
