    Description

    Chester Gould Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 10-31-45 (News Syndicate, 1945). From a prime span of nutty excellence for Tracy, one of the essential comics features. Homicidal Itchy Oliver has set his car on fire to throw Tracy off his trail but has forgotten to get his ill-gotten gains out of the car and must watch his $50,000 go up in smoke! Junior Tracy and Tess Trueheart are on hand as witnesses. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 19.75" x 6". Light toning and several text corrections. A blank, glue-stained space at upper left, for a title insert. Very Good condition. From the Ray Edw Collection.
