LOAC Essentials Vol. 11: “Cap” Stubbs and Tippie 1945
Written and Illustrated by Edwina Dumm
A delightful year of comic strips starring the lovable shaggy dog named Tippie; his companion, the mischievous young boy named Cap Stubbs; and Cap’s wise Grandma. The strip, which ran from 1918 to 1966, started as a gag-a-day comic, but by the mid-1940s was clearly a continuing saga about homespun life in a small town.
