Charley Chaplin's Comic Capers by AC Carruthers & Elzie Segar (0280-) - There is little doubt that Charley Chaplin was the pinnacle comedic genius of the Silent Screen.  His unparalleled popularity crept into all forms for media including Newspaper comics.  Charley Chaplin's Comic Capers hit both the Daily and Sunday Comics pages in 1915 under the hand of AC Carruthers.  The strip was a gag strip prominently featuring Chaplin's greatest character creation - the Little Tramp.    In Spring of 1916, soon-to-be creator of Thimble Theatre and later Popeye, Elzie Crisler (E.C.) Segar would take over production of the strip.   Filled with plenty of action sequences, Segar brought the slapstick of Chaplin to life in exquisite fashion throughout his tenure on the strip.  Licensing contracts on the strip would cut it's run short in 1917.  The collectability of these pages is huge with the combination of the classic Charley Chaplin character and it's relatively short run.   Sold exclusively as individual full-size pages, the demand for these is very strong at a very high premium.   These are some of the most sought-after gems among newspaper comics.  Dailies are as rare as Sundays and sell equally well at very high premium.
