    Description

    Woody Kimbrell (signed as Marge) Little Lulu Daily Comic Strip Poster and Promotional Collaterals Group of 4 (Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate, 1950-51). Little Lulu is duly celebrated for two incarnations -- Marjorie Henderson Buell's Saturday Evening Post gags of the 1930s-40s, and the John Stanley-Irving Tripp comic books of the 1940s-60s. (There also was a run of animated cartoons, but let's not go there.) A lesser-known Lulu is Kimbrell's delightful newspaper strip of 1950-64, which sprung off the Stanley model, but with self-contained daily gags in lieu of Marge Buell's single-panel yockers or Stanley's long-form stories. Kimbrell adopted the Stanley-Tripp character designs. This centerpiece here is a poster/folder, which contains early examples of the strip. Also included are a Lulu fold-out card and two illustrated envelopes that had contained Lulu promotional materials. The envelopes show stains and tearing, but the card and the folder are in tip-top shape, with light toning. Image area, 11" x 15". Very Good condition, overall.
