Womans Career, by Fay King

Fay King was one of the female comic artists in America at the beginning of the twentieth century. She drew comics in which she featured herself, drawing herself looking like Olive Oyl. In these autobiographical strips, she portrayed her own opinions and personal life, inspiring generations of future women comic artists. In 1913, Fay King married world lightweight champion Oscar Matthew "Battling" Nelson, which drew a lot of public attention, as well as their divorce in 1916.
