Anyway, here's some vintage comic strip Christmas pages from a hundred years ago. Many thanks to Allan Holtz of Stripper's Guide (link in the sidebar) for the swipes. Click to enlarge.
About the strip above, I like the way this artist lays out the page. It's an ignorant style but there's something funny about it. Sort of Hugh Lofting (Dr. Dolittle) meets Opper.
Here's (above) the final panels in a two week long series where Santa develops a military plan to bomb a town with toys. Oops...I have to surrender the room to my kid. 'Hope you guys had a good Christmas!
