Newspaper Comic Strips – online and in the library

The last entry is dated January 2010, so it may not be very active these days, but if you are interested in newspaper comic strips from days of yore (early 20th century), this site, Barnacle Press, is a gold mine of obscure titles you are unlikely to find elsewhere on web. Another site to check for old comics: Stripper’s Guide – that’s comic strip, as opposed to a paint or pole stripper.

And to explore more in the Visual Arts Library’s collection, here are some titles to check out:
