This book looks at the humor that artists and editors believed would have appeal in four different countries. Ian Gordon explains how similar humor played out in comic strips across different cultures and humor styles. By examining Skippy and Ginger Meggs, the book shows a good deal of similarities between American and Australian humor while establishing some distinct differences. In examining the French translation of Perry Winkle, the book explores questions of language and culture. By shifting focus to a later period and looking at the American and British comics entitled Dennis the Menace, two very different comics bearing the same name, Kid Comic Strips details both differences in culture and traditions and the importance of the type of reader imagined by the artist.the people within them, for broken window jokes, the daily Skippy strip could deliver stories in both social and domestic settings. Crosby ... the broken window, a play on the gag of anyone in a rush being asked where is the fire, and interactions with the police, a feature of many kid comics. ... From the context of the strips this difference appears to again be because of the greater space Bancks had to fill.
