Say, Pop 1918, by Charles M. Payne

Charles M. Payne started his career in 1896, working for the Pittsburgh Post newspaper. His first comic strip was called 'Coon Hollow Folks', which was followed by titles such as 'Bear Creek Folks', 'Scary William' and 'Yennie Yonson'. After gaining much popularity in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia newspapers, he moved to Hollywood, where he created 'Honeybunch's Hubby', for the New York World. In 1910, he came up with the idea for a new strip, 'Nippy's Pop'. Later renamed to 'S'Matter, Pop?', the strip ran for 30 years. In spite of the fame and riches this strip brought him, Payne eventually died a poor man, in 1964.
