Obscurity of the Day: Mr. Goodthynge

Charles R. Macauley was a guy with a restless pen. In addition to producing editorial cartoons for most of his working life (and getting a Pulitzer in the process), he also worked in animated cartoons, book illustration, screenplays and even wrote a few novels. What he did darn little of was comic strips, and Mr. Goodthynge is one of only two series he produced in his lifetime (the second came over twenty years later!).

Mr. Goodthynge is nothing memorable plot-wise, harried husband yada yada yada, but the art, of course, is topnotch.. The series ran in the New York Herald January 13 to February 3 1901.
