    Description

    Chris Ware Acme Novelty Library #1 "Jimmy Corrigan" Page Original Art (Fantagraphics, 1993). Part one of "Jimmy Gets Out of the House" has the Smartest Kid on Earth creating a working ten-inch rocket ship, and, so he can pilot the ship, a shrinking potion concocted from items found in his mother's cosmetics cabinet. Reading this Sunday Comics-styled page is almost like traveling back in time; Ware's visuals evokes the work of artists like Frank King and Cliff Sterrett while simultaneously looking like something entirely original and new. The art is in ink over blue pencils on illustration board, with an approximate image area of 13" x 19.5". There is some handling wear along the outer edges, but the overall condition is Excellent. From the Eric Sack Collection.
