1776-1927

From 1776 to 1927, the Brownies, the Yellow Kid, Buster Brown, the Katzenjammer Kids and more gradually filled the newspaper pages as comic characters provided entertainment and social commentary for the whole family. Their popularity made them the perfect product pitchmen. The era ends as Charles Lindbergh makes his historic transatlantic flight and takes American pop culture into the stratosphere.
