Swipes File #10: Talking Heads

The Comics Journal had an interesting feature called the “swipes file” where they showed two comics or cartoons by different creators with very similar formatting. In that spirit, I offer a series of mash-ups (or possibly swipes) on similar topics from some of my archival research.

pepin - Edouard Guillaumin - Le Grelot - 1871

Edouard Guillaumin (Pepin), Le Grelot, 1871

Grip 9 April 1887 - Bengough

J.W. Bengough, Grip, 9 April 1887.

This swipe was brought to my attention by Carman Cumming in Sketches from a Young Country:The Images of Grip Magazine.
