    Description

    Frederick Opper Happy Hooligan Partial Sunday Comic Strip Original Art (c. 1900-17). Happy Hooligan, a hobo, and an ape named Marmaduke combine for explosive results on this lower-half of a Sunday comic strip. Dated July 1 on the right margin, that would put this in either 1900, 1906, or 1917. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 21.5" x 12.5". The board is partially colored with watercolors as a color guide for the printer. The board is toned, with some handling wear in the margins. In Good/Very Good condition.
