Little Growling Bird
Little Growling Bird in Windego Land was by A. T. Crichton syndicated by the North American Co. This sample is from August 18, 1906. Was this the first continuing comic strip western? That honour usually goes to James Swinnerton’s Little Jimmy which began in 1902 but that was apparently a city strip which changed to a South-western locale at a later date.
