The Brownies is a series of publications by Canadian illustrator and author Palmer Cox, based on names and elements from English traditional mythology and Scottish stories told to Cox by his grandmother. Illustrations with verse aimed at children, The Brownies was published in magazines and books during the late 19th century and early 20th century; the Brownie characters became famous in their day, at the peak of their popularity were a pioneering name brand within merchandising. Not unlike fairies and goblins, Brownies are imaginary little sprites, who are supposed to delight in harmless pranks and helpful deeds. Never allowing themselves to be seen by mortal eyes, they are male, drawn to represent many professions and nationalities, all mischievous members of the fairy world whose principal attribute is helping with chores while a family sleeps; the first appearances of Brownie characters in a print publication took place in 1879, but not until the February 1881 issue of Wide Awake magazine were the creatures printed in their final form.
The first proper story, The Brownies' Ride, appeared in the February 1883 issue of the children's periodical St. Nicholas Magazine. Published in 1899, The Brownies Abroad is considered the first Brownie comic strip, though it was a text comic, it didn't utilise speech balloons until the publication The Brownie Clown of Brownie Town of 1908. From 1903, The Brownies appeared as a newspaper Sunday strip for several years; the first compilation, The Brownies, Their Book, was published in 1887, followed by 16 books in the series until the last in 1918. Palmer Cox died in 1924. Beyond print publication, The Brownies was at least twice adapted to stage plays. With the rise in popularity of the Brownie characters, these were used in many venues of merchandising, such as games, cards, calendars, package labels, plates, soda pop, a slot machine, a bagatelle game and so forth. George Eastman applied the brand name in promotion of Kodak's "Brownie Camera", but Palmer Cox never received any money for the commercial use of his work.

Ziff Davis, LLC is an American publisher and Internet company. It was founded in 1927 in Illinois, by William Bernard Ziff Sr. and Bernard George Davis. Throughout most of Ziff Davis' history, it was a publisher of hobbyist magazines ones devoted to expensive, advertiser-rich technical hobbies such as cars and electronics. However, since 1980, Ziff Davis has published computer-related magazines, its websites, derived from its magazines, have established Ziff Davis as an internet information company. Ziff Davis had several broadcasting properties, first during the mid-1970s, with its own technology network ZDTV renamed to TechTV, sold to Vulcan Ventures in 2001. Ziff Davis' magazine publishing and internet operations offices are based in New York City and San Francisco. On January 6, 2009, the company sold 1UP.com to UGO Entertainment, a division of Hearst Corporation and announced the January 2009 issue of the long-running Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine as the final one. Former Time Inc. executive Vivek Shah, with financial backing from Boston private equity company Great Hill Partners, announced on June 4, 2010, the acquisition of Ziff Davis Inc. as the "first step in building a new digital media company that specializes in producing and distributing content for consumers making important buying decisions."On November 12, 2012, Ziff Davis Inc. was acquired by cloud computing services company j2 Global of Hollywood, Calif. for $167 million cash.
According to a late 2015 Fortune article, Ziff Davis comprises 30% of parent company j2 Global's $600 million annual revenue and is increasing 15% to 20% each year. Analyst Gregory Burns of Sidoti & Company calculates; the William B. Ziff Company, founded in 1920, was a successful Chicago advertising agency that secured advertising from national companies such as Procter & Gamble for all African American weekly newspapers. In 1923, Ziff acquired E. C. Auld Company, a Chicago publishing house. Ziff's first venture in magazine publishing was Ziff's Magazine, which featured short stories, one-act plays, humorous verse, jokes; the title was changed to America's Humor in April 1926. Bernard George Davis was the student editor of the University of Pittsburgh's humor magazine, the Pitt Panther, was active in the Association of College Comics of the East. During his senior year he attended the association's convention and met William B. Ziff; when Davis graduated in 1927 he joined Ziff as the editor of America's Humor.
Ziff, an aviator in World War I, created a new magazine, Popular Aviation, in August 1927, published by Popular Aviation Publishing Company of Chicago, Illinois. Under editor Harley W. Mitchell it became the largest aviation magazine, with a circulation of 100,000 in 1929; the magazine's title became Aeronautics in June 1929 and the publishing company's name became Aeronautical Publications, Inc. The title was changed back to Popular Aviation in July 1930; the magazine is still published today by the Bonnier Corporation. The magazine celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2017; the company histories give the founding date as 1927. This is when B. G. Davis joined and Popular Aviation magazine started. However, it was not until 1936 that the company became the "Ziff-Davis Publishing Company". Davis was given a substantial minority equity interest in the company and was appointed a vice-president and director, he was named president in 1946. Davis was a photography enthusiast and the editor of the Popular Photography magazine started in May 1937.
In early 1938, Ziff-Davis acquired the magazines Amazing Stories. These were started by Hugo Gernsback but sold as a result of the Experimenter Publishing bankruptcy in 1929. Both magazines had declined since the bankruptcy but the resources of Ziff-Davis rejuvenated them starting with the April 1938 issues. Radio News was published until 1972; the magazine Popular Electronics, derived from Radio News, was begun in 1955 and published until 1985. Amazing Stories was a leading science fiction magazine and Ziff Davis soon added a new companion, Fantastic Adventures. In 1954 FA was merged into the newer magazine Fantastic, founded in 1952 to great initial success. ZD published a number of other pulp magazines and digest-sized fiction magazines during the 1940s and 1950s, continued to publish Amazing and Fantastic until 1965. Ziff-Davis published comic books during the early 1950s, operating by their own name and the name Approved Comics. Eschewing superheroes, they published horror, sports and Western comics, though most titles didn't last more than a few issues.
Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel was the art director of the comics line. In 1953, the company abandoned comics, selling its most popular titles—the romance comics Cinderella Love and Romantic Love, the Western Kid Cowboy, the jungle adventure Wild Boy of the Congo—to St. John Publications. Ziff-Davis continued to publish one title, G. I. Joe, until 1957, a total of 51 issues. William B. Ziff, Sr. died in 1953 and son William B. Ziff, Jr. returned from Germany to assume his role in the company. In 1958 Bernard G. Davis sold his share of Ziff Davis to found Davis Publications, although Ziff-Davis continued to use his surname. With the younger Ziff's direction, ZD soon became a successful publisher of enthusiast magazines. Ziff Davis purchased titles like Car And Driv
Love Is... is the name of a comic strip created by New Zealand cartoonist Kim Casali in the 1960s. The cartoons originated from a series of love notes that Grove drew for her future husband, Roberto Casali, they were published in booklets in the late 1960s before appearing in strip form in a newspaper in 1970, under the pen name "Kim". They were syndicated soon after and the strip is syndicated worldwide today by Tribune Content Agency. One of her most famous drawings, "Love Is...being able to say you are sorry", published on February 9, 1972, was marketed internationally for many years in print, on cards and on souvenirs. The beginning of the strip coincided with the 1970 film Love Story; the film's signature line is "Love means never having to say you're sorry." At the height of their popularity in the 1970s the cartoons were earning Casali £4-5 million annually. Roberto Casali was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1975 and Kim stopped working on the cartoon to spend more time with him. Casali commissioned London-based British cartoonist Bill Asprey to take over the writing and drawing of the daily cartoons for her, under her pen name.
Asprey has produced the cartoon continuously since 1975. Upon her death in 1997, Casali's son Stefano took over Minikim, the company which handles the intellectual rights; the strip appears daily except Sunday. Love Is... is a single-frame strip. The upper left-hand corner starts with a simple phrase which always begins with "Love Is...", the drawing appears in the middle and the remainder of the phrase at the bottom. Each strip is independent of the others; the main characters are a man and woman depicted unclothed, with no primary or secondary sexual features shown other than the woman having nipples. It is clear which character is male and, female due to tertiary features; the male has dark short hair while the female has light, waist-length hair. The characters have been featured in various stages of romance: just meeting, as boyfriend and girlfriend, as a married couple. Sometimes, the male is shown in a military uniform. A 1974 strip has the male naming the female as "Kim", while a 1971 panel has the female writing the letter'R' in the beach sand.
Both of these are consistent with her husband Roberto. The strip includes the couple's two children; the boy and girl have the hair coloring of their opposite gender parent, have been featured both as infants and as elementary school age. From time to time the female's parents are shown, both parents have light hair and are featured as being elderly; the male's parents have featured in the strips. They have similar looks as those of female's parents. In one of the strips, female is shown talking to her mother-in-law over the phone. A dog, Samson, is shown sometimes in their household, in one strip they had a small grave with a stick with the name Fido on it a deceased pet dog. In one 2005 strip the couple are accompanied by two cats, in 2009 the woman is shown crying over her deceased cat; the characters may appear single or together. Items appearing in the strip are shown in the shape of or featuring, hearts - symbolic of the strip's theme; the male is sometimes shown reading a newspaper named Daily Blah.
Other men shown in the strips are different in their looks. They have curly blond hair and sometimes shown with a mustache, while the male is always shown with his usual black short straight hair. Other women shown in strips are short haired as compared to the female. Although the strip deals with light issues, sometimes there are messages related to environment conservation and teaching their kids lessons about the environment. In one of the strips the characters are shown campaigning to save children. In the 1980s an alternate version of the strip ran in the "Cartoons" paper in the British newspaper the Mail on Sunday; this was a three- or four-panel strip, with the male and female characters drawn clothed. The Turkish version of the strip is sold in form of small pieces of comic strips wrapped around gum; the cartoon has an official application on Apple's iTunes store. Philosophy of love
Brenda Starr, Reporter
Brenda Starr, Reporter is a comic strip about a glamorous, adventurous reporter. It was created in 1940 by Dale Messick for the Chicago Tribune Syndicate. Although set in Chicago, Brenda Starr, Reporter was the only Chicago Tribune Syndicate strip not to appear in the Chicago Tribune newspaper; when the strip debuted on June 30, 1940, it was relegated to a comic book supplement, included with the Sunday Chicago Tribune. Soon the strip appeared in the Sunday paper and a daily strip was added in 1945. During the 1950s, at the height of its popularity, the strip appeared in 250 newspapers. In 2010, the strip appeared in 36 of them international. Following Messick's retirement as Brenda Starr's artist in 1980, the strip was continued by different female writer and illustrator teams. From 1980 through 1982, Messick continued scripting, the strip was illustrated by Ramona Fradon. In 1982, Linda Sutter took over writing. Mary Schmich began scripting the strip in 1985, with Fradon continuing as the illustrator until her 1995 retirement.
From 1995 onward, June Brigman illustrated Schmich's scripts. The final strip was published on January 2, 2011; the character was name-checked by the rock group Blondie on their single Rip Her to Shreds. A greeting card illustrator for the Chicago Tribune Syndicate, Messick created Brenda Starr, Reporter following the rejection of a female pirate-based comic strip that she had submitted; the character name, Brenda Starr, was based on Brenda Frazier, a debutante of the 1930s, while her appearance was based on the movie actress Rita Hayworth. The strip encountered resistance from Tribune editor Joseph Medill Patterson because its creator was a woman. After the strip was established, other instances of resistance were reported. "Whenever Ms. Messick drew in cleavage or a navel, the syndicate would erase it, she was once banned in Boston after showing Brenda smoking a polka dot cigar." Brenda has always been a modern woman, noted for steamy romances. Dale Messick and artists concentrated on keeping Brenda contemporary in clothing and hairstyles.
Before Messick retired, Brenda married the mysterious Basil St. John, whose eye patch and black orchid serum have been a regular plot element. Shortly thereafter, Brenda had Basil's baby, a girl named Starr Twinkle St. John. Brenda and Basil divorced, sparks flew when they met again. During one of Basil's reappearances, Brenda discovered Basil had a son named Sage with the talk show host Wanda Fonda; that marriage ended in divorce. Brenda and Wanda became good friends. Brenda was promoted from reporter to editor. However, Basil's mysterious assistant, a handsome Kazooki code-named "Ringo," persuaded Sage and Brenda to travel instead to Paris, France. Sage was thrilled by the idea of traveling by an undersea tunnel. Brenda admitted that she "could never say no to Paris." In the French capital, Ringo revealed two secrets to Brenda: 1) Basil was financing and training teachers to educate the Kazooki people. When he says the latter, Brenda either does not hear him—or pretends not to, but the second time, she hears him—and feels as if she is drowning.
She recovers, says: "Thanks for the gift." The two continue exploring Paris and explaining their feelings to each other. They drink an entire bottle of champagne and Ringo recites mystic Sufi love poetry to Brenda; when the bottle is empty, Ringo places a love poem by Hafez inside it, casts it into the Seine, calculating that one day it will reach American shores. They bid a sad bittersweet farewell. Ringo returns to Kazookistan. Brenda returns Sage to his mother Wanda in the US. Bottomline, Brenda's orders her to take a furlough -- an unpaid leave. Starr instead accepts a job offer from her old friend Pug—who is now working for a newspaper in India. Brenda and Pug early have a major disagreement, concerning a street child. Brenda is ready to adopt the hungry little girl, but Pug warns her against falling for the wiles of the slumpuppies. Starr finds herself attracted to a dark and handsome fellow reporter, Salman Mistry. Salman shows some hostility towards Brenda because she is an American; the street urchin, named Carina, turns out to be the rich heiress of the wealthy Khan family.
The other members of the family—Taj, Caressa—are suspects in a major and complex conspiracy, including the assassination of journalists and a plot for brutal slum clearance. Back in the US, Brenda is shocked to discover that The Flash has become a free newspaper and has taken on a blogger, the callow Jason, she is disappointed too. When the new mayor, charismatic Sterling Golden, is implicated in a murder, Brenda flies off to Belize in Central America, in search of the missing green campaigner Verde. Golden's manipulative mother turns out to be behind other dark doings. Brenda next investigates eccentric district attorney Tap Fitzpatrick in relation to the death of her fellow reporter Felicity Fox, discovers that Tap's father is plotting against him while faking senility. At the newspaper holiday party, Brenda announces her retirement. In the final strip, she walks away with tears in her eyes; as she leaves the party she receives a box containing a black orchid, a card with the initials BSJ. Brenda Starr, Reporter was published as a comic book series by four different publishing houses.
The first was Four Star Publications in 1947, followed by Superior Publishing from 1948 through 1949
Frank King (cartoonist)
Frank Oscar King was an American cartoonist best known for his comic strip Gasoline Alley. In addition to innovations with color and page design, King introduced real-time continuity in comic strips by showing his characters aging over generations. Born in Cashton, King was the older of the two sons of mechanic John J. King and his wife Caroline; when Frank was four years old, he moved with his parents to 1710 Superior Avenue in Tomah, where they operated their family general store. He started drawing while growing up in Tomah, where he graduated from Tomah High School in 1901, he entered country fair drawing competitions. The salesman arranged an interview for King with a Minneapolis newspaper editor. King began earning $7 a week at the Minneapolis Times, during his four years there, he doubled his salary while creating drawings and doing retouching. On March 17, 1905, he gave a chalk talk at a Minneapolis St. Patrick's Day celebration. In 1905-06, he studied art at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts.
After a spell at an ad agency and a brief time at the Chicago American, he spent three years with the Chicago Examiner, where he worked next to cartoonist T. S. Sullivant. In 1909, King left the Examiner to work at the Chicago Tribune, according to his friend, Chicago cartoonist Lew Merrell, he increased his weekly pay 50 cents. At the Tribune he worked alongside Dean Cornwell and Garrett Price. In 1910, he began a short-lived daily comic strip, Jonah, a Whale for Trouble, which ran in the Tribune from October 3, 1910 until December 8, 1910, he followed with a Tribune Sunday strip, Young Teddy, seen from September 10, 1911 to October 6, 1912. His funny frog Sunday strip, Hi-Hopper, ran from February 1, 1914 until December 27, 1914. On February 7, 1911, King married Delia Drew from Tomah, they were both 28 years old and moved into a series of apartments on the South Side of Chicago. Delia gave birth to a stillborn daughter in 1912, in 1916, a son, Robert Drew King, was born, it was at this time that the family moved to 533 Madison in Glencoe, a somewhat affluent suburb on Lake Michigan north of Chicago.
In 1916, King's salary from the Tribune was $5000. By 1925, this had grown to $22,500, a princely sum, augmented by royalties from Gasoline Alley books and toys; the Rectangle began as a Chicago Tribune page featuring a variety of serial features. King's Rectangle Sunday page printed in black-and-white outside the comics section, was a late addition to a page that ran for years in the Tribune. On January 9, 1913, King introduced a bounded rectangle containing themed single-panel gags, but pages in that format did not appear with any regularity until February 1914; the Rectangle title was introduced on December 27, 1914. King created several recurring strips, including Tough Teddy, The Boy Animal Trainer, Here Comes Motorcycle Mike, Hi Hopper and his first successful full-page comic, Bobby Make-Believe. During World War I, King was overseas drawing scenes of the war for publication in American newspapers. On Sunday, November 24, 1918, the bottom quadrant of The Rectangle featured Walter Weatherby Wallet and his neighbors Bill and Avery as they repaired their automobiles in the alley behind their houses.
The corner was titled Sunday Morning in Gasoline Alley. King recalled, "My brother had a car that he kept in the alley with a fellow by the name of Bill Gannon and some others. I'd go to his house on Sunday, we'd go down the alley and run into somebody else and talk cars; that was the beginning of Gasoline Alley." After King began the daily Gasoline Alley strip, The Rectangle appeared sporadically and came to an end on February 8, 1920. King credited his wife, for providing a "woman's angle" to Gasoline Alley; the central character of Walt was based on King's brother-in-law, Walter White Drew, he used his own son, Robert Drew King, as the model for Skeezix. Tomah's Dr. Johnson was the inspiration for the character of Doc, Bill in the strip was based on Bill Gannon. King hired young Bill Perry from the Chicago Tribune's mail room and trained him to work as his assistant. Although King leaned toward a homespun simplicity in his Sunday story situations, he introduced some unusual experiments with time and space, as noted by comics critic Paul Gravett: Other precedents from America’s newspaper supplements were occasional experiments by Frank King in his Gasoline Alley Sunday pages where he would turn the whole page into one continuous landscape.
For example, on 24 May 1931, King uses an unrealistic isometric perspective to turn the page into a single image, like a diagram viewed from above, of the neighborhood and its assorted residents. This angled aerial view he divides into 12 equal panels, each containing at least one fresh character to contribute their own moment of comedy. In more of an ensemble of jokes than a linear narrative, no characters appear here more than once. King went further, however, in 1934 when over three consecutive weeks he used the whole page as one image to portray a house being built, from bare site to construction to finishing touches; the first of these, dated 25 March 1934, presents repeated images of Skeezix and his pal Whimpy as they play around the foundations dug out of their favorite baseball diamond and meet a local girl. Here the threesome move around 12 identical square panels and time unfolds in sequence, although jumping ahead sometimes by a considerable period from one to the next; the s
Smitty (comic strip)
Smitty was a newspaper comic strip created in the early 1920s by Walter Berndt. Syndicated nationally by the Chicago Tribune New York News Syndicate, it ran from November 29, 1922, to 1973 and brought Berndt a Reuben Award in 1969; the strip featured young office boy Smitty, his six-year-old brother Herby, his girlfriend Ginny and his dog Scraps. Other characters were Smitty's boss, Mr. Bailey, the Indian guide, Little Moose. Berndt based the strip on his own experience as an office boy, recalling, "I learned the tricks and schemes of an office boy and became expert at them." Berndt saw his creation as featuring "flashbacks of things you did as a young fellow." As the strip progressed, the teenage Smitty aged to young adulthood and got married. From 1938 through 1960, Berndt produced the comic strip Herby as a topper to Smitty. Berndt's first strip, lasted less than a year. In 1922, he created Smitty, which he continued until 1973, yet it did not begin without a struggle, as cartoonist Mike Lynch described in a 2005 lecture: After a stint drawing sports cartoons under T.
A. "TAD" Dorgan, he took over the Fun Begins panel from Milt Gross. By 1920, Berndt had left the Journal to start his own strip; the strip lasted a year. He worked at The New York World, but within weeks, he was fired for insubordination. Berndt broke. So, with zany cartoonist timing, he got married! And he began making the rounds with a new strip titled Billy the Office Boy, it was 1922. The World Series was on. Big news, so no one could get near the editors. Berndt couldn't get in to see anyone. Segar said there wasn't a World Series in Chicago and suggested he send the proposal to Captain Patterson. So Berndt mailed the strip to the Chicago Tribune. Patterson, opening a phone book for reference, renamed it Smitty and bought it at Berndt's high asking price; the strip became a mainstay, with the adventures of Herby continuing for over 50 years. Smitty merchandising included tin toys, Cupples & Leon reprint books, comic books and sheet music for the song "Smitty"; the Smitty tin toy is valued at more than $1000.
Berndt won a Reuben Award in 1969 for Smitty. NCS Awards Smitty at Don Markstein's Toonopedia Archived from the original on June 4, 2017
William Donahey was a U. S. cartoonist and creator of The Teenie Weenies, a comic strip about two-inch tall people living under a rose bush. The strip appeared in the Chicago Tribune for over 50 years, he drew The Teenie Weenies for a total of about 2100 strips. Donahey was a shy child when growing up, he would dream up The Teenie Weenies as a pastime. He turned them into a profession in the form of comic features in newspapers and advertising. Donahey spent much of his childhood. One of his pastimes was imagining strange creatures in a small world, he claimed this was the birth of The Teenie Weenies. His parents, John C. Donahey and Catherine Donahey, noticing his creative work, enrolled him in the Cleveland School of Art, they had hoped that he would follow his older brother James Harrison "Hal" Donahey into the illustration business.

Donahey liked much the Mother Goose rhymes and took an interest in them, he not only illustrated children's cartoons but started illustrating Mother Goose rhymes as well. Soon he composed his own poems and stories; when Chicago Tribune editor Joseph Medill Patterson saw Donahey's artwork, he offered him a full-time job as a cartoonist for the comics section. Here is where he created The Teenie Weenies inspired by The Brownies, the popular feature by Palmer Cox; the Teenie Weenies and illustrated by Donahey, contrasted normal-size objects with tiny protagonists. Donahey's stories consisted of a large illustration and accompanying text about the lives of many characters that lived beneath a rose bush with full-size objects like hats and old boots.
