    Description

    Circulation Magazine Special Comic Strip Edition (September, 1926) Condition: VG/FN. For lovers of early newspaper strips, this is a real treasure trove! Circulation was a trade magazine marketed to newspaper editors, and this special edition focused almost entirely on comic strips. The cover unites quite a crew of strip favorites, featuring characters from Bringing Up Father, Polly and Her Pals, Thimble Theater (starring Castor Oyl, in the days before Popeye took over the strip), Just Kids, Jerry On The Job, Tillie the Toiler, and more, all flying on a magic newspaper page over a cityscape -- it's really something, reminiscent of a Winsor McCay Little Nemo strip. Inside, there are articles on various features, including George McManus' report on his tour of Japan, and lots of full-page strip reprints and ads. Not listed in Overstreet.
