Dr. Seuss’ Short Lived Newspaper Comic Strip, Hejji

Our Adorable Past

This is just one installment of Theodor Geisel’s Hejji, a weekly newspaper strip that ran for less than a year in 1935, but that features not only Geisel’s distinctive style, but a number of thematic visuals that would become major plot ponts of his later children’s books. Seen here: somebody who shouldn’t be hatching and egg, hatching an egg.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
