New Comic Monday! Today we welcome Skippy by Percy Crosby, a comic from the 1920s!
More about Skippy:
GoComics is happy to introduce the Skippy comic, created by Percy Crosby, to another generation of comics lovers. Skippy debuted as a daily newspaper strip in 1925 and as a Sunday the following year. It soon became a sensation, being published in 28 countries and 14 languages. Crosby continued writing and drawing the feature until 1945. In spirit, it is similar to strips that followed it, such as Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes.
Because of its depiction of current times in the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, there may be cultural differences displayed that differ from today’s style and content of comics. We’ll show you a time with different diction and slang, when the world was a bigger place and not simply a click away from someone across the ocean. This includes The Great Depression and World War II . Enjoy this flashback to the time of The Greatest Generation with one of its greatest creative treasures.
