Ironic Noah Comic in the 1910s.
January 25, 2014
For four months in the early 1910s, a color comic ran in the Chicago Tribune Sunday called "Noah's Ark Boys." The artist, Ben McCutchen, used the then-popular Noah's Ark figurines to play out stories straight from children's imaginations. Play time, for McCutchen, did not involve biblical piety or religious morals. Instaed, the strip dished up absurdity, violence, and fantasy, more closely representing actual kids' play.
Thanks to Allan Holtz, a comic strip historian, for his blog.
