Pete the Tramp by CD Russell (1120-) 1st appearance January 10, 1932 - Pete the Tramp was the comic creation of CD Russell.   Beginning in 1932 during the Great Depression when a overlarge portion of the country were living in destitution, Pete the Tramp portrayed that lifestyle with stark reality blended into the intended humor.   Pete lived the homeless lifestyle, scrounging for places to stay, meals, and the occasional job.   Some of the decisions that Pete made that were designed to bring a chuckle, but could not be duplicated in the current econcomy without raising some eyebrows regarding appropriateness.   Public focus on world events in the World War II ended the poiniancy of the gags and the strip passed into history.   The market for Pete the Tramp is somewhat thin.   Nice runs can be obtained at very reasonable prices.
