    Description

    Johnny Hart B.C. Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-11-68 (Publishers-Hall Syndicate, 1968). Hart's famous caveman strip does a takeoff on "Jack and the Beanstalk" in this splendidly composed and eccentrically lighted installment. One solid-black panel yields to an unusual light-and-shadow effect, utilizing Zipatone shading film, scratched with an X-Acto blade to achieve a radiant impression. Inscribed to Manfred Zitzman, a prominent chess champion and comics enthusiast. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 17.5" x 5.25". Light toning. Excellent condition.
