More Opper Overflow from the New Happy Hooligan Book

NBM’s latest entry in their Forever Nuts series of classic comic strip reprints is Happy Hooligan by Fred Opper. I provided a biographical essay on Opper for the book as well as a number of raw scans of Opper material. You can purchase your copy at

I supplied a great many Opper cartoons that didn’t find their way into the book, so here’s a potpourri of bonus Opper items for you. Today we have three from Opper’s Puck days, when he used a very refined style completely different than the one he used for newspaper strips.

These three Puck cartoons are all satires on religious themes, a favorite subject for Opper in his days with that magazine. Opper curtailed such cartoons when working for Hearst.
