    Gill Fox - Bernie Blood Comic Strips Original Art, Group of 5 (Stars and Stripes, circa 1944). While working as art director for the military newspaper Stars and Stripes, Europe, Gill Fox kept his drawing hand in play by producing a comic strip for the enlisted men called Bernie Blood. Bernie was short in stature, big in bravado, and constantly having to endure the bruises, black eyes, fractures and face slaps that his big, blustery mouth caused him. His audacity and sense of honor created more than a lot of trouble for the hapless private, but usually the goal was to get close to some curvaceous cutie. No red-blooded American soldier could fault the guy! Each strip measures 21" x 5.5" and are in Very Good condition. From the collection of Gill Fox.
