    Gus Arriola Gordo Sunday and Daily Comic Strips Original Art and Related Materials, Group of 7 (United Feature Syndicate, 1940s-1980s). A generous and varied selection of the classic Latin-ambassador comic, from early until well along in the run. Arriola was one of the most inventive and experimental artists in the funnypapers, and the breadth of this lot illustrates his creative drive in a context with his sense of humor and command of narrative pacing. The dailies are dated 10-12-48, 6-10-54, and 1-1-79. The richly designed Sundays are dated 7-11-54, 11-5-78, and 8-19-79. Additional materials include an original Christmas card to Arriola from his cartoonist pal Boody Rogers; a variety of photographs and memorabilia, and a reproduction of a drawing from Arriola's schoolboy self. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image areas, 19" x 5.25" to 23" x 15". Varied degrees of toning. Very Good to Excellent condition.
