A pioneer comic artist, James Swinnerton is most often credited in histories of the funnies for things he never did.  He never drew anything titled Little Bears and Tigers, and the feature he did draw about bears was not the first newspaper strip.  In fact, it wasnt a comic strip at all.  A talented artist, Swinnerton did, however, contribute significantly to the development of comics in the more than 60 years he worked as a cartoonist.  His most successful strip was < (showing 500 of 16045 characters).
