In The Origins of Comics: From William Hogarth to Winsor McCay, Thierry Smolderen presents a cultural landscape whose narrative differs in many ways from those presented by other historians of the comic strip. Rather than beginning his inquiry with the popularly accepted "sequential art" definition of the comic strip, Smolderen instead engages with the historical dimensions that inform that definition. His goal is to understand the processes that led to the 20th-century comic strip, the highly recognizable species of picture stories that crystallized around 1900 in the United States.
