Here’s the other series that ran in the San Francisco Bulletin in 1903. The ‘official’ title, the one used most often, was The Adventures of Ping and Pong. This one’s by a fellow named R.O. Yardley. He not only did this series but a lot of the one-shot color comics that ran in the Bulletin that year. This series ran from February 1 to March 15, missing only one week in that interval.
Tomorrow we’ll have one last 1903 Bulletin item – probably the very first newspaper appearance by a cartoonist whose name would appear on the nation’s comics pages daily for the next half century.
