Oh yes kids, you hear it all the time, but it's true—the newspaper comics were amazing in days of old. Imagine magic like this Johnny Gruelle strip at the huge full-size that comics use ter be.

Johnny Gruelle — Mr. TweeDeedle — ca 1915

FYI, Gruelle is the guy who created the Raggedy Ann and Andy story books.
