    Description

    Charles Addams New Yorker Magazine October 1941 Panel Gag Illustration Original Art (New Yorker, 1941). "Hey Pop, that's not a real Hangman's Knot!" Charles Addams' dark and macabre sense of humor is legendary. It really struck a chord with readers of The New Yorker in 1932 and propelled him to popularity. His work there eventually coalesced into several cartoons about a ghoulish family of perfectly normal monsters. In 1964, this became a TV show named after him, The Addams Family. Cartoons such as this one clearly show what a dark and wonderful gift he had. It is ink and ink wash over graphite. It is framed with a glass front and an image area of 10" x 12". In Excellent condition.
