Abstract

This chapter compares and contrasts the way artists James Bancks and Percy Crosbie used similar humor tropes, such as broken window gags, in their respective comic strips Ginger Meggs and Skippy. It also examines the different styles needed in a daily and a Sunday comic strip. The two strips shared much and yet each had a distinctive type of humor that requires some familiarity with the culture of origin to fully comprehend.
