    Description

    Frank Willard Moon Mullins Hand-Colored Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-30-24 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1924). A magnificent example of Willard's experiment in combining daily-gag humor with character-driven narrative. Moonshine Mullins' reputation as a genial reprobate is taking shape nicely, and his kid brother, Kayo, already shows signs of smart-aleck juvenile delinquency. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with detailed watercolor tinting (post-publication) by Willard. Signed at lower right. Image area, 16.5" x 24.5". All panel tiers have been pasted in place, then extended with retouching. Age-toning and adhesive staining. Otherwise in Very Good condition.
