    George McManus Panhandle Pete Sunday Comic Strip Original Art (New York World Publ., 1900s). Before he developed a thoroughly original voice with The Newlyweds and Bringing Up Father, McManus took cues from many fellow cartoonists. Panhandle Pete, a goofy chronicle of hobo life, is a riff on Frederick Opper's Happy Hooligan. A funny riff, at that, with Pete running a makeshift barbershop and two fellow bums risking their necks as customers. A rampant billy-goat steals the show. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18" x 10.5". Astonishingly light in toning, considering the age. Excellent condition.
