Frist!1

Over on the comic scholars discussion list there’s an interesting thread about early ‘comics’- prompted by Frederick Schodt’s re-publishing of Yoshitaka Kiyama’s The Four Immigrants Manga: A Japanese Experience in San Francisco 1904-1924. * In refuting any claims of “firstness” and easing into “early”, someone pointed out Journey to the Gold Diggins by Jeremiah Saddlebags written & drawn by the Read Brothers,  from 1849.  I found a microfilm copy in our Western American collection, digitized it, and posted at Archive.org.

*Cataloging side-note: Our library uses LC call numbers, and it’s located in the Fs (F869. S39 K5913 1999, to be exact).  Why not in the PN 6700s? I also notice we have a collection of Joe Coleman paintings in our PNs and not in the Ns- any thoughts on this reversal?
