Jerry Costello

Jerry Costello (1897-1971), the longtime editorial cartoonist for the Albany
Knickerhocker News from 1922-1962, relied more on humor and satire in
his drawings than Kirby. When New York Governor Al Smith sought
the presidency in 1928, a collection of Costello's cartoons was published as
The Life of Al Smith: Told in Forty-Eight Pictures. Costello also created the
1930s comic strip "The Topsy Turvies."
