Description
Already a successful cartoonist and illustrator for political magazines like Wild Oats and Puck, Frederick Burr Opper turned to the new medium of color comics in the Sunday funnies when William Randolph Hearst hired him to create a comic strip for the New York Journal. Happy Hooligan was the original born loser, a hobo who fell afoul of the law in every episode, despite his good intentions. Yet Happy always retained his positive outlook, in contrast to his brother Gloomy Gus, and some of Opper's comic tropes would go on to inspire other cartoonists and animators. Along with scores of Sunday strips from the early 1900s, this book looks at Opper's career and cartooning at the turn of the 20th century.
