Abstract
One of the earliest efforts to “consider comic strips, as a class, as serious art” (p. 34), with high expectations: ““The world of King, Canifff, and Capp—to name only three of the best—is ample evidence that comic strips are a serious art demanding serious study. All the medium really needs now is a set of critics who will edit the classics, define the genres, catalogue the conceits, and elaborate the aesthetics. The time is not far hence when Professors of Comics will take their rightful place besides Professors of Literature, and our children will be given great gobbets of Orphan Annie or Mutt and Jeff as homework.” (p. 39)
