This study argues for a multidisciplinary understanding of the work of Winsor McCay. It investigates the development and construction of the comic strip, identifying alternatives to the dominant formalist discourse and providing context for Winsor McCay’s key position in the history of the medium. It then discusses the development of vaudeville entertainment culture, addressing its rise to prominence as an outgrowth of increased industrial development affecting the formation of middle-class identity through popular culture. Chalk talks, a type of performance enacted by McCay, are examined with regard to the larger context of vaudeville performance. These lines of discourse are brought together in the work of Winsor McCay. The connections between his comic strips and vaudeville performances chart the emergence of a form of entertainment spectacle specifically contingent upon the historical development of modes of popular expression.
