Comic Strip: Vater und Sohn
Vater und Sohn is a German b/w comic strip by Erich Ohser aka e.o.plauen that tells about the hijinks in the life of a father and his son. It was published weekly during 1934-37 in the Berliner Illustrirten Zeitung.

Before you ask: Yes, this was during the time of Nazi Germany. Here's the background: The artist had made anti-nazi caricatures during the Weimar Republic, so when Those Wacky Nazis came to power, he was forbidden to publish anything. They only made an exception since V+S was completely unpolitical, and published under a pseudonym. And even so, he still had trouble with the nazis - he ended up committing suicide in Gestapo custody.
