Hamlin subsequently ran a series about prehistoric man: “Fragment’s of Man’s Early History.” It was a decent series, but let’s face it: here on Mars we want prehistoric beasts! From 1938-1939, Fragments became “Fragments: Odds and Ends of Prehistoric Lore.” NOW we’re talking! Let’s rock those dinosaurs, prehistoric mammals, prehistoric birds, and other prehistoric animals.
Sadly, Fragments eventually got demoted from a huge single panel into a small strip at the bottom of the page called “Odds and Ends.” It abandoned prehistory almost completely by the end of 1939, becoming a strip called “Science Says.”
Today we will share with you our collection of images from Fragments: Odds and Ends of Prehistoric Lore. We’re leaving out a few about human pre-history, because, well… DINOSAURS RULE! Enjoy!
