    Description

    Chester Gould Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 9-25-45 (Chicago Tribute Syndicate, 1945). Tracy's famous "Breathless Mahoney" case was a tough act to follow, but Gould sustained the momentum with the even creepier "Itchy Oliver" adventure, in which supporting villain B.O. Plenty begins a transformation to a sympathetic character. Here, Tracy seeks the whereabouts of Plenty while an accomplice of Itchy's stalks B.O. The accomplice is the widow of Tracy bad guy B.B. Eyes. Gould's sense of long-term continuity is thoroughly in evidence. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 19.75" x 6". Aside from some light toning and soiling, the art is in Excellent condition. From the Ray Edw Collection.
