Born on this day in 1888, Martin Branner is the creator of the unique comic strip, “Winnie Winkle the Breadwinner.” The protagonist of this strip was a little girl who grew up to be a career woman. In time, she was married, had a baby, and was eventually widowed during WWII. The strip continued long after Branner’s death until its end in 1996.
Now, do you want to see a pic by Branner of Winnie Winkle playing strip poker, nekid as the day she was born?! You know you do! That art is in my new book “Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings”. Order it now!
