From the Yellow Kid to Kidd Millennium

The Yellow Kid may have long been forgotten, but he has had his successor. At the turn of the millennium, journalist Ron Callari and illustrator Jon Donohoe created a 21st Century version equivalent to Yellow Kid, an online cartoon character called Kidd Millennium.

Like his predessor, Kidd Millennium is the spokesperson for social ills. But unlike his predessor, his existence is in e-format rather than print form. His cartoons and merchandises are available in a website dedicated to him. His first graphic novel, entitled Crude Behavior, are sold in as e-readers in Kindle, Apple and Google versions.
