1883 picture serial--Through Spain on Donkey-Back, Part 1 (W.P. Bodfish)

"Through Spain on Donkey-Back" was a multi-part "picture serial" that appeared in the children's periodical Wide Awake, beginning with the April, 1883 issue.  Drawn by one W.P. Bodfish, it looks and functions so much like a modern comic book feature, I can't see what else it could be considered.
