    Description

    Bob Dunn and Hy Eisman Little Iodine Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-15-69 (King Features Syndicate, 1969). Dunn was a star gagman in his own right: He had codified the "knock-knock" riddle tradition in a bestselling book of 1936, and his own cartoon features enjoyed wide distribution. But it was his long-term affiliation with comics master Jimmy Hatlo that kept Dunn plugging away for King Features, and his Hatlo-like style gradually overshadowed Dunn's own method. Inheriting responsibilities for the related features Little Iodine and They'll Do It Every Time following the death in 1966 of creator Hatlo, Dunn sustained the momentum and raised the ante on sarcastic hilarity. This school-days episode is a classic of embittered wit, in collaboration with old-timer Eisman. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 22" x 9.75". Moderate toning, stained logotype. Very Good condition. From the Tex Blaisdell Archives.
