    Description

    David Wright Carol Day Daily Comic Strip Original Art Group of 2 (London Daily Mail, 1960). Episodes 1121 and 1123 find weasly Oswald Patcham annoying leading lady Carol Day with a renewed proposal of marriage. If Oswald is truly the "Last of the Line," as the title of this story-arc declares, then it is probably for the better that he should remain that way. Master illustrator Wright is at a peak of accomplishment, here, achieving a near-photographic realism with deft, woodcut-like strokes of a fine crow-quill pen. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 17" x 5". The strips are moderately toned, with marginal markings and barked corners. In Very Good condition.
