In 1912, Dirks took a break from drawing, so the Hearst newspaper syndicate brought in artist Harold Knerr to continue the strip. A lawsuit ensued, and two comic strips emerged.

    I won this book as part of a Goodreads Giveaway. The Katzenjammer Kids is well before my time, obviously - since it's first publication was by the end of the 1800s. I was thrilled to win this book because I'm a big fan of newspaper comics and comic books. It's always fascinating to see what history viewed as comedy. Definitely worth a read.
