This chapter examines the convergence between comics and the American novel in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It considers how novels found their way into newspapers and magazines in the form of comic strips around the turn of the twentieth century before turning to a discussion of the emergence of printed pictorial journalism, with special reference to book illustration. It also looks at political cartoons and some of the most popular political cartoonists of the period, including Thomas Nast and Joseph Keppler, as well as newspaper comic-strip creators such as Richard Outcault, Frederick Burr Opper, Lyonel Feininger, and Winsor McCay.

Keywords:   comics, novel, newspapers, magazines, comic strips, pictorial journalism, book illustration, political cartoons, political cartoonists, Thomas Nast
