This article examines the weekly supplement comics as they appeared in the American yellow press papers in the closing decades of the nineteenth century. One of the most prominent stories featured a recurring character known as the ‘Yellow Kid’. The Yellow Kid stories appeared in the Sunday editions of two competing New York newspapers: Joseph Pulitzer’s World and William Randolph Hearst’s Journal. While there is extensive research on Richard Felton Outcault’s Yellow Kid series, the number of analyses of the ‘other’ version, the series created by George Benjamin Luks, is still fairly small. This article attempts to fill this gap.
