‘Twas News Then print by Jo Mora

Unpublished 1934 concept art for ‘Twas News Then, a proposed one-page newspaper comic by illustrator Jo Mora (1876–1947). Each entry highlights a single historical event: this one depicts the sacking of Panama City by privateer Sir Henry Morgan in 1671. Captivating and complex, the 18x24 black ink drawing serves as a prime example of Mora's ability to capture copious amounts of activity within a scene.
