The crisis years between the two world wars saw a veritable explosion in cartooning and comic artistry across Europe and the world. Well-established satirical journals like the British Punch, French Le Charivari and Le Rire, and Germany’s Kladderadatsch and Simplicissimus were joined by the Soviet Union’s remarkable Krokodil in chronicling the triumphs and travails of politics, society, and culture in these turbulent times. So too the ever-growing cartooning industry supported by mass-circulation newspapers allowed great talents as diverse as the left-leaning David Low and the committed Nazi Hans Schweitzer to thrive. In Britain in the 1930s, for instance, there was cartooning for all political persuasions: fascist, conservative, liberal, labour, and communist. This was also the period when American-style comic art invaded Europe (Mussolini banning all such comic books except Topolino / Mickey Mouse, which his children loved), but also when the greatest European comic artists were beginning to emerge (including Hergé, creator of ‘Tintin’). The cartoon archive is an ideal starting-point for historical investigation of the years 1919-1939, but is surprisingly little-studied. This paper considers both the incredible richness of the archive, as well as the limitations to making the most of it for academic and educational purposes.
