Clare Briggs was one of the titans of the comic strip in the early 20th century. In this 1926 volume, he explains how to build a career in comics, and how he found the humorous aspects of life that informed such classic strips as When a Feller Needs a Friend and The Days of Real Sport. With over fifty example cartoons, plus added advice from such key cartoonists as H. T. Webster (creator of The Timid Soul), F. Opper (Happy Hooligan), Frank King (Gasoline Alley), Winsor McCay (Little Nemo), and more, this book proved inspirational. Charles Schulz cited this book as leading him down to the road to Peanuts.
