    Description

    George McManus Bringing Up Father With Rosie's Beau Topper Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-20-42 (King Features Syndicate, 1942). Maggie is mortified that the high society might see some of Jiggs' "wardrobe malfunctions," leading to a hilarious final panel that is also a fine showcase for McManus' deft linework. And the topper strip is highlighted by a great portrait of the coquettish Rosie. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 16.5" x 21". Some moisture rippling. Please note, the two halves of the strip have been affixed to a piece of illustration board and might not be removable. Very Good condition.
