    Frank Willard Moon Mullins Hand-Colored Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-3-24 (Chicago Tribune, 1924). Featuring Kayo, Mr. Brudder, Mushie, and Moon. Frank Willard had been drawing a strip called The Outta Luck Club for King Features when he was fired after an altercation with George McManus (of Bringing Up Father fame); he quickly moved over to the Chicago Tribune Syndicate, where head honcho, Captain Joe Patterson, had been contemplating a strip about a tough guy. Willard's Moon Mullins debuted from Patterson's syndicate on June 19, 1923. This is a splendid Sunday from the only the second year of the series, which has been hand-colored with vibrant hues. The image area measures 16.5" x 25", and the art is in Very Good condition.
