The first five comic books published in 1902

Swinnerton’s cover for On and Off the Ark (1902), 1 of the first 5 comic books published by W.R. Hearst.

THE RESULTS ARE IN. Yesterday’s Papers co-editor Huib van Opstal took a closer look at Jimmy Swinnerton (1875-1974). After nearly two years the results of his findings may be published here any day now — a long ‘biography and reading of James Guilford Swinnerton’s life and work.’ 

Many international contacts kindly helped. Shown above is one of the images before it was restored for Yesterday’s Papers.
