Ripley's Believe It Or Not celebrates its 90th anniversary today and lays claim to the title of the longest continuously published daily comic.
The feature, which boasts that it has been "proudly freaking out families for 90 years," was started by Robert Ripley, an illustrator for the New York Globe, who was looking for a way to fill some space in the paper. He started chronicling sports oddities but soon expanded to other fields. His legacy has grown into a small publishing empire, selling a million books a year. John Graziano is the fifth artist to pen the comic.
