    Harold Gray Little Orphan Annie Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 10-9-66 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1966). Gray often used ancient-castle settings as a metaphor for lurking menace. This tense large-scale episode confronts Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks with a sweetheart who intends to poison him -- in the wine cellar of a creepy old mansion. Warbucks, of course, turns the tables. Tense and impeccably well-drawn in Gray's customary ink-over-graphite technique on Bristol board. Image area, 25" x 16.5". Per syndicate custom, each panel is glued to a backing sheet, with retouching at the upper edges; the small retouched patches appear to be the work of an assistant, inconsistent with Gray's painstaking style. One panel (lower left) has loosened. Adhesive residue and staining, with overall toning; otherwise, in Very Good condition. From the Ray Edw Collection.
