Franklin Booth in the Sunday Funnies

Here is a rare, perhaps even unique, appearance by the great illustrator Franklin Booth in the Sunday comics. This strip, which seems to be the start of a series but apparently wasn’t, was produced for the World Color Printing Sunday section of July 24 1904.

If you’re not familiar with Booth’s work, it is absolutely fabulous, breathtaking stuff. Go check out his work on this site and this one. And now that you’re a Booth fan (and who wouldn’t be after even a small taste!) get a copy of this wonderful collection of his work.
