    George Swanson (as Swan) The Flop Family Daily Comic Strip Original Art (King Features Syndicate, 1975). No other artist kept the faith more strictly with the 1920s' screwball style of comics. Swanson had mastered such slapstick exaggerations with Salesman Sam (1921-27), then sustained the approach all the way into the 1970s with The Flop Family. These bright, sarcastic examples are entirely consistent with Flop Family installments dating all the way back to the 1940s. The dates, all from 1975, are 8-6, 8-7, 8-11, 8-12, 8-13, 8-25, 8-26, and 8-28. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with Zipatone shading. Image area, 17" x 5". Moderate toning and adhesive staining. Very Good condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
