    Description

    Brant Parker - Original Comic Strip Art for The Wizard of Id Daily, dated 3-3-75 (Field Enterprises, 1975). Johnny Hart conceived the idea for the medieval cartoon "The Wizard of Id" and Brant Parker signed on to illustrate Hart's gags for the strip. The popular cartoon's humor derives from time-out-of-joint absurdities and satire of 20th century problems. In the first panel the King's speech balloon is a paste-over with unused artwork underneath that apparently had not left room for the King's dialogue. This strip is handsomely framed with a pair of engraved plaques with publication and biographical information. The artwork itself is 5.5" x 18" while the entire framed piece is 17" x 24".
