The Glorious Fourth at Yapp's Crossing by Johnny Gruelle

Have a wonderful Canada Day and/or Independence Day. Back next week for more fun.

Until then, here is illustrator Johnny Gruelle's salute to the 4th of July. Gruelle was born in 1880 in Arcola, Illinois. A prolific illustrator, he's best remembered now as the creator of Raggedy Ann. Classic comic fans may know that he created the comic strip Mr. Twee Deedle for the New York Herald; a fantasy strip that echoed the then-departing Little Nemo.

Now, be careful with them firecrackers!
