Mr. Everett True was a cartoon character created by A.D. Condo and J.W. Raper in the early 1900's.

The Everett True cartoons are a model of narrative simplicity:

The comic strip is remarkable in its two-panel simplicity, in the strength of illustrator Condo's linework (which anticipates Winsor McCay), and in the character's unrepentant cosistency. No one was safe from "The Outbursts of Everett True," as friends, relatives, business associates, perfect strangers, and officers of the law all felt the wrath of Everett's indignation.
