92267: Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Comic Strip Pan
Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Comic Strip Panel with Teddy Roosevelt Original Art (undated). Buster Brown "sticks" it to wild game hunting and photo op enthusiast Teddy R. in this uproarious panel. The terrible tyke first appeared in The New York Herald on May 4, 1902. Buster's companion in mischief was his bulldog, Tige, and the pup is said to be the first talking pet in American comics. Young Mr. Brown was just as mischievous as those other Sunday hellions, The Katzenjammer Kids. Buster was created by R. F. Outcault, who originated The Yellow Kid, a feature often cited as the original American comic strip. This panel has an overall size of 15" x 13", and aside from some overall paper aging, is in Very Good condition. Resolved: to put in a bid on this classic feature of American comics.
