    Description

    Frank Willard Moon Mullins Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-28-30 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1930). Moonshine Mullins, the most lovable reprobate in the comics, bunks overnight at a friend's house -- with disastrous results. Willard's extensive use of solid-black patches creates an aura of mystery that keeps the reader wondering until the final punch-line panel. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area, 16.5" x 18". Lightly toned, with handling wear, pinholes, and an extremely tight crop at the lower border. The logo and top date are printed paste-ups. Good condition.
