Early Newspaper Comic Strips
June 1, 2012 1:25 PM Subscribe
I have the full run of the Krazy Kat comics and really enjoy them. Does anyone have recommendations on other interesting or noteworthy early newspaper comic strips? Also, where can I find collected runs of these comics (used or new, in or out of print)? I would also be interested in any book that provides a readable overview of early newspaper comic strips.

For example, I really want to get a full run of Little Nemo, but my understaning is that the only currently available source is a five-volume set that is criticized for being too small and compressed in paper size. Is there a good source to find out-of-print versions, which I understand are better and more true to the original run?
To be clear, I am looking for comic strips from around 1900-1930 (or so), which means I would not be interested in Peanuts, for instance.
