    Description

    Frank King Gasoline Alley Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-10-46 (Chicago Tribune, 1946). This hand-colored Sunday strip features Corky, with Skeezix in the first panel. The art is ink and watercolor over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 17" x 21". It is signed in the first panel, and has a funny "Tom Sawyer" joke in it. We think the best joke on the page however, is in the personalized message on the bottom margin... it is signed "To Jimmy Hatlo: I'm sending this a bit late. I'll do it every time! Frank King, 1946". Jimmy Hatlo's own long-running famous comic strip was titled They'll Do It Every Time. This Sunday has toning, with pinholes in the corners, and it is affixed to a backing board in a matting. Overall, in Very Good condition.
