African American History Month: Higgins Soap, c1880s

To close out African American History Month, we present the following trade card (i.e., advertising cards) series, given away in the 1880′s by Higgins Soap. While it does have stereotyped dialect (and one use of “Sambo”), it otherwise (in my opinion) avoids a racist presentation. It’s especially refreshing, in comparison to other cartooned soap advertisements […]

African American History Month: Light & Shade, 1892

WARNING: The below 19th century strip contains racist imagery and language. The 1892 giveaway booklet Light and Shade, advertising Dreydoppel Soap, and containing the below 8-panel story, is (in my opinion) the most heinous piece of comic strip advertising I’ve ever seen. I debated myself over whether I could stomach scanning and posting this horrible, […]

WARNING: One of the below cartoons includes racist imagery. We continue our African American History Month coverage, with a few images from Cartoons Magazine (above) and The Daily Worker (below).

WARNING: The below 19th century strip contains racist imagery and language. Continuing our coverage of African American History Month, we have today another comic booklet by the Geo. W. Helme Co., manufacturer of Railroad Mills Snuff & Tobacco. Published in 1888, only two decades after the end of slavery, this is an example of how […]

WARNING: The below 19th century strip contains racist imagery and language.

This giveaway comic, is one of many published in the 19th Century. While all types of products […]

African American History Month: Miscegenation or the Millennium of Abolitionism, 1864

Bromley & Co., on July 1st, 1864. It is part of a series of anti-Lincoln / anti-Abolition cartoons, published by Bromley, on how the abolition of slavery, would […]

Teddy Roosevelt: Cartoons Magazine Centennial 1912

As we approach the Grand Finale of our political circus, SuperI.T.C.H. strives to keep you up on every twist & turn — from one century ago. Today our focus swings back to former U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt, seeking to return for a third term. He was running against not only the Democrats, but also against […]

The Bull Moose Party vs. the Black Vote: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, September 1912

WARNING: The below posting contains racist cartoons. We’ve shown a few racist cartoons in our chronological presentation of the material that ran in Cartoons Magazine, but this is the largest & worst group of such cartoons thus far. Some people would simply not show them, afraid that giving them wide visibility might perpetuate the attitudes […]
