Buster Brown
Buster Brown is a comic strip character created in 1902 by Richard Felton Outcault which is known for his association with the Brown Shoe Company. This mischievous young boy was loosely based on a boy near Outcault's home in Flushing, New York. Buster Brown, his sister Mary Jane, and his dog Tige were well known to the American public in the early 20th century. Tige is thought to be the first talking pet to appear in American comics, and, like that of many of his successors, his speech goes unnoticed by adults.

The comic strip began in the New York Herald on May 4, 1902. Outcault left for William Randolph Hearst's employ in 1906, and after a court battle, Outcault continued his strip, now nameless, in Hearst papers, while the Herald continued their own version of Buster Brown with other artists. The latter lasted until 1911 or so, and the former until at least 1921.

Little Nemo
Little Nemo is the main fictional character in a series of weekly comic strips by Winsor McCay (1871-1934) that appeared in the New York Herald and William Randolph Hearst's New York American newspapers from October 15, 1905—April 23, 1911 and April 30, 1911—1913; respectively. The strip was first called Little Nemo in Slumberland and then In the Land of Wonderful Dreams when it changed papers. A brief revival of the title occured from 1924-27.

Out Our Way
Out Our Way was a daily comic panel created by J. R. (James Robert) Williams (1887-1957) and syndicated by Newspaper Enterprise Association starting on March 20, 1922. It was an umbrella title for several alternating series which centered on small-town and working-class folk. The series changed over the years, but the most prominent were The Bull of the Woods (machine shop), Curly and gang (modern cowboys), The Willets (a family), Worry Wart (another family though mostly just a younger and older brother), and the U.S. Cavalry. A Sunday page was added later; this featured just the Willet family and was drawn by Neg Cochran and George Scarbo.
At its height, Out Our Way appeared in more than 700 papers and was read by millions. It is often described as the most clipped and posted newspaper strip ever (at least back in the day when posted meant stuck to something. The strip continued until 1977, twenty years after Williams’ death.

War On Crime
War on Crime was a daily comic strip from the Ledger Syndicate out of Philadelphia. It was scripted by out of FBI files by staff crime reporter Rex Collier who had won the approval of J. Edgar Hoover for his favorable reporting on the FBI. The artwork was handled for the first year by Kemp Sterrett who was replaced by Jimmy Thompson. The stories were fast paced and soon Collier had run through the big timers like Dillinger and Baby-Face Nelson. The later stories featured lesser-knowns like Glen Applegate. The strip ran for less than two years from May 18, 1936 to January 22, 1938. DCM has the complete series of ten stories. There never was a Sunday strip. The later EC comic of the same name is not related.
