    Description

    Harold Gray Little Orphan Annie Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-16-67 (Chicago Tribune, 1967). From the last year of Gray's life, this intense sequence finds the master author-cartoonist thoroughly in command of his artistry. Dangerous good guys Punjab and the Asp are closing in on the kidnappers of Annie Warbucks. After Gray's death in May of 1968, his family donated most of his originals to Boston University; pages still in circulation are extraordinary rarities. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 25" x 16.75". Each panel is glued to a backing board, with the art extended to fit the slightly larger holding spaces. There is toning, glue residue, and discoloration to the pasted-on title stat, and a few panels have loosened. Very Good condition. From the Ray Edw Collection.
