    Description

    George Herriman Bernie Burns Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-15-31 (King Features Syndicate, 1931). This understated gag panel ran apace with Herriman's famous Krazy Kat feature, and is just as beautifully drawn, even though Bernie Burns lasted only into 1932 under Herriman's stewardship. The recurring gag involves Embarrassing Moments -- which in fact had been the title of the strip before Herriman took charge in 1928. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with scratched white highlights. The image area measures 7" x 7" and is in Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
