Cartoon from a handwritten newspaper created by teenager George Ftikas and his friend, which was distributed throughout their neighborhood in Salonika.

The page is entitled (translated), "The Story of Little Benito." The frames are captioned,
1. When he was young, he lingered around killing time.
2. They said that he'd become a big head (important man) ... and he did.
3. When he grew, he acted like a rooster ... and wanted to occupy Greece.
4. But he started work with tassels (got into big trouble).
5. And he ate his face (hurt himself).
6. At the end, he went to hell (literally, "the Devil got his mother and father").
