    Jose Luis Salinas Cisco Kid Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-4-59 (King Features Syndicate, 1959). Known as "The Robin Hood of the Old West," the Cisco Kid was the creation of author O. Henry, and the character enjoyed a successful run in the comics from 1951-1968, stunningly illustrated by Argentinean artist Jose Luis Salinas. Rendered in a highly sophisticated, illustrative style, Salinas ranks among the best comic strip artists of all time. This strip features a conversation about Mr. Tharp, the man with a big heart. Being the most popular man in town isn't it all it's cracked up to be. Created in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of approximately 20" x 5.75", matted and Plexiglas-front framed to 24.5" x 10.75". Slight toning, Zipatone discoloration, with smudging and staining. Salinas signature in lower right of strip. In Very Good condition.
