    Description

    Cliff Sterrett Polly and Her Pals Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-7-35 (King Features Syndicate, 1935). Artist Cliff Sterrett has been referred to as the "Picasso of the comics" for his inventive use of shapes and forms. This wonderfully wacky strip paved the way for all the "pretty girl" strips to come, like Fritzi Ritz and Boots and her Buddies, and then took the medium even further with great style and down-to-earth domestic humor. Comic fans the world over owe a debt of gratitude to Cliff Sterrett. In this graphic gem, with all the great Art Deco elements, Paw Perkins' bid for an escape into the night life is thwarted when Maw tumbles to his escape route in this jazzy Sunday page from the thirties. This awesome piece of artistic perfection has an image area of 20.5" x 28.5", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 31" x 28". In Excellent condition. From The Art of the Funnies Collection.
