    Description

    Chester Gould Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 7-10-45 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1945). So beautiful, so evil -- that's Breathless Mahoney, one of the most vicious eccentrics ever to taunt Detective Tracy during Gould's inspired stretch of the 1940s. This sequence sets up a dangerous encounter between the fugitive Breathless and a major supporting character, the trouble-prone hillbilly named B.O. Plenty. Fine Expressionistic inkwork, headlong momentum. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 20" x 6". Light toning. Excellent condition. From the Ray Edw Collection.
