    Charles Phil Bissell and Others - Editorial Comic-Strip Panels Original Art Group of 8 (c 1940s-1970s). Nashville-based Bissell rings in the New Year of 1979 with the dominant piece in this varied selection of (mostly) editorial commentaries. Elsewhere, Ontario cartooning legend Merle Tingley comments sarcastically on special-occasion weeks. Vancouver's Len Norris razzes the Customs Department. Pulitzer medalist Paul Szep takes a breather from politics to deliver a funny scene in an aquarium (signed). The New York Post's Sean Delonas makes a droll observation about voter-registration fraud. And off the political-cartoon beat, NEA Syndicate's Gill Fox delivers two domestic gags from his daily strip, Side Glances (one is inscribed); and Bruce Bolinger offers a surreal piece about a frog and a psychiatrist (signed). Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image areas range from 9" x 5" to 15" x 10.5". Varied age-toning. Very Good to Excellent condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
