Synopsis
Two brothers from North-Germany emigrated as children to the USA. At the end of the 19th century the young men went to New York to try their luck as cartoonists.
Comic strips were extremely popular in the New York Sunday newspapers at that time to reach the poorer citizens – mostly immigrants. The anarchic cartoon 'The Katzenjammer Kids,' which lampoons the German immigrant milieu, made Rudolph Dirks famous. Rudolph's younger brother Gus Dirks is considered a pioneer of animal comics.
Martina Fluck joins illustrator Tim Eckhorst in retracing the Dirks brothers’ footprints. Their journey leads them to New York and to the artists’ colony in Ogunquit, Maine, which Rudolph Dirks decisively influenced.
