Herriman Saturday

All four of these cartoons appeared in the Examiner’s Sunday edition of March 10 1907, a rather incredible performance for any cartoonist. The first and last were both full page width!

Of particular interest is cartoon #3 (“Are You a Worker…”). This is Herriman’s first appearance on the syndicated Hearst Sunday editorial. Usually at this time the cartoons accompanying this preachy Sunday tradition were penned by Robert Carter, but occasionally others would fill in. It seems as if Hearst, or at least Brisbane back in New York, were starting to take note of our man Garge.
