Old Comics

Cliff Sterrett was one of the great artistic innovators of the newspaper comic form. William Randolph Hearst evidently had a hard time keeping from delving too deeply into abstract art. Polly and Her Pals¬†was one of the best of all those old comics. The comics that I’m going to post this week are from 1931.

    There are similarities in Sterrett’s work and that of George Herriman’s Krazy Kat.

      Correct. Both were and still are considered among cartoon historians to have created the most artistic of all cartoon work. Sterrett has been compared to Picasso.
