MY VIRTUAL ESCAPE INTO
THE SUNDAY FUNNY PAPERS
WHERE MAX’S & MORITZ’*
[HANS’ & FRITZ’]
PUNISHMENT IS FUNNY
ENOUGH TO PAPER
OVER A LITTLE BOY’S 
PUN-ISH-MENTAL SCARS.

*[Note: Max and Moritz were the names of the boys in Wilhelm Busch’s elegant graphic narratives—the German artist Busch began drawing the rascals in 1865. They were the inspiration for Rudolph Dirks’ Katzenjammer Kids syndicated by the Hurst newspaper in the US in 1897. The version of the comic strip in which I lost myself in the 1930s was called the Captain and the Kids. The title was changed during World War One to appease anti-German sentiment in the US. The strip that I read in the Sandhill House was probably drawn by Harold Knerr. It’s a complicated story.]
