The Adventures of Willie Winters

Continuing our theme of 1912-published comic books, that might have been found beneath the Christmas Tree, one solution for parents on a tight budget, may have been (assumed) premium comic book (given away with x puchases (??) of Kelloggs Toasted Corn Flakes), The Adventures of Willie Winters, by Byron Williams and Dearborn Melvill.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.

Below, we have some sample pages from the book. As we can see on the last page shown, giving this comic might have back-fired on parents, as the lesson it teaches, is to throw back in the face any cereal given that is not Kelloggs Corn Flakes!

    Haw! Even if incredibly derivative (there’s a bit of everything in there from Little Nemo to Buster Brown), these are beautiful and delightfully wacky. The goggle-eyed expressions of Willie the bulldog-faced child are priceless. Thank you!

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
