Little King (The.., The Ambassador) by Otto Soglow (0830-) 1st Appearance 1932, 1st Sunday Comic November 26, 1933 - Otto Soglow first created his royal characters in the daily comics of 1932.   Eventually dubbed 'The Little King',   Soglow's creation was a wonderfully funny and clever strip.   The running gag of the strip was that the King was much less regal than one would expect him to be.    The little portly man would continuously put himself into positions that would be more appropriate for the common man.    The King and the characters around him were drawn to severe exaggeration which only adds to the humor of each situation.     The King became so recognizable, that he was often used as what would be called today as a trademark for it's publication syndicate, King Features.   The market for Little King strips is starting to warm up a bit.   Offered mostly as Halfs, Tabs, or smaller,  Fulls from the early years of the strip sell above average.   Later runs move a bit slower.
