Meet Mr. Otto Watt, one of the original radio freaks. The above strip is from way back in September of 1925.
Fred Neher was an American comic strip artist and cartoonist. In the early 1920s he assisted Arch Dale on Doo-Dads and he created his own feature Otto Watt.
Neher is best known for 'Life's Like That', a cartoon feature he drew for Bell Syndicate from 1935 to 1941 and from 1945 to 1977. It was published in 500 newspapers at its peak He also created a strip called 'Goofey Movies'.
If you're digging Otto, you'll probably also enjoy The Adventures of Radio Raymond and The Adventures of Radio Ralf as well as mucho mas vintage strips from the cool folks over at: Barnacle Press.
Happy 4th Of July!
