The American Weekly was published by the Hearst Corporation (from November 1896 up to the 1963) for inclusion as a supplement to their Sunday newspapers.  It was the Parade magazine of its day, and it was also a precursor of the National Enquirer.  It was billed as having a circulation of over 50,000,000 readers and was filled with scantily clad showgirls and tales of murder and suspense.  It was large - about 21"x15" - and printed on fragile newsprint, so few copies have survived the ensuing decades.  While much of each 12-24-page issue is taken up with sensationalistic photos and text (and even some acknowledged fiction), the illustrations are generally good quality, especially the covers.  Starting in mid December 1922, King Features Inc. syndicated Bonzo's image for this supplement.  Under the title "A Dog's Life", they were used as the front page of the supplement & started out by replicating the same images as had appeared in The Sketch magazine.  By early 1926 these had been replaced with the short story style strips that had first appeared in Tit-Bits magazine in the UK.  By 1932, after around 115 front covers were published featuring Bonzo, "A Dog's Life" series finished.

Here are a few examples of the series:
