    Yellow Kid Print. Hully Gee! The Yellow Kid was America's first comic character superstar and made the comics a permanent part of our culture. William Randolph Hearst, the publisher of The New York Journal, was well aware of the Yellow Kid fever in New York City, and finally lured Outcault away from Joseph Pulitzer's The New York World and put him to work at a much higher salary, drawing the Yellow Kid for the Journal. R. F. Outcault and the Yellow Kid demonstrated that the Sunday comics could sell newspapers and other forms of merchandise, and firmly established the comics as an integral part of the American newspaper. A beautiful offset print based on the advertising poster from the turn of the century, this full-color 15.5" x 21.5" photo offset print is in Excellent condition.
