What Happened Next?

The story behind What Happened Next is HERE. Top strip is dated June 22 1912, next June 29 1912 and finally September 20 1913.

Adventures of Captain Morgan

The Adventures of Captain Morgan began on September 8 1949. These samples are from the Stanstead Journal, Quebec's oldest weekly newspaper. Stanstead is home to about only 3000 people so the strip may have been syndicated from elsewhere. Did it have anything to do with Seagram's Captain Morgan Rum? An advertising ploy? And who was the "foremost Canadian cartoonist" mentioned in the blurb?
