    Description

    Bob Lubbers Kemi of Ancient Egypt Tryout Sunday Comic Strip Original Art (1950). Created as a sample piece and submitted to Ward Greene at King Features Syndicate in 1950, Bob Lubbers designed this piece to specifically look like other strips on the market. e.g. Prince Valiant, Jungle Jim, and Tarzan. Did it work? Green offered Lubbers a strip just a week later. However, it was too late, as Lubbers had already accepted the job of doing Tarzan for United Feature Syndicate by then! This story is capsulized in the lower right margin in Lubbers own hand. A unique, one-of-a-kind comic strip created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 19.5" x 26.5". The board is toned and slightly warped. In Very Good condition. From the Estate of Bob Lubbers.
