Kewpies, The by Rose O'Neill (0760-) - 1st Sunday Comic Appearance December 2, 1917 - The Kewpies are a true treasure of americana which made it into the sunday comics for two brief stints.  Rose O'Neil created the Kewpies in 1905 as a magazine feature.   The feature would invariably show the nymphish babes in character surrounding rhymes.    It was that theme which continued into the Sunday Comics of 1917.   The feature was easily one of the finest quality strips of the day, but O'Neill would shut down production with the close of the First World War.   The strip made a reappearance in 1935 and would take on a new quality.  Now the babes were featured strip characters getting into relatively harmless mischief.    Unfortunately, this iteration of the strip also lasted only a brief couple of years.  Regardless, the popularity of the Kewpie dolls and the characters live on for nostalgia fans across the nation.  Due to the popularity driven by nostalgia collectors, and the limited supply of the brief runs, the market for Kewpies is very good.  The early series from 1917 to 1919 were offered exclusively as fulls.   Those pages command one of the highest premiums of any title.    The second iteration from 1935 to 1937 were offered primarily as Tabs.   They too demand a very high premium.
