Katzies by Opper?

I have heard that Frederick Burr Opper ghost-penciled (but did not ink) a Katzies page for Dirks. Both the African-American and the Katzies faces in the second panel have that Hooligan look, very much like Opper's work.

I agree that this is likely an Opper creation, but it's even more of an admixture than it first appears! The black man is Sam from Jimmy Swinnerton's "And Sam Laughed" strip!

Love the blog!

Fantastic! I'll have to go back and get the lower half. I'm a fan of your blog as well.
