    Jimmy Swinnerton Mr. Jack Daily Comic Strip Original Art (Hearst Syndicate, 1914). James "Jimmy" Swinnerton was one of the earliest American comic-strip artists -- pre-dating even the groundbreaking Yellow Kid. In 1896, Swinnerton began drawing little tigers, reminiscent of Thomas Nast's famed Tammany Tiger, and a new strip, Mr. Jack was started. This strip is prime Swinnerton, with the title character trying to pick up an attractive lady tiger, only to discover he is being Punk'd nearly 90 years before the TV show was created! This piece is in ink on illustration board and has an image size of 18" x 4.5". Tanned, otherwise, in Excellent condition.
