A short strip or sequence of comic drawings, telling a story and getting to a point or part of a longer sequence, published on a recurring basis (usually daily or weekly) in newspapers or on the Internet. (See also comic.) The comic strip began in 1865 in Germany with Max and Moritz. The great popularity of comics sprang from the newspaper war between Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst. The Little Bears (the first American comic with recurring characters), The Yellow Kid (the most successful early comic), and Katzenjammer Kids (the first American multipanel comic) all debuted in the 1890's as part of the Hearst-Pulitzer struggle. The first color comic was The Yellow Kid, also part of the first Sunday comic section in 1897. Mutt and Jeff became the first daily comic strip in 1907. Hundreds of comic strips have followed with many running for decades.
