    Description

    Marge Buell Little Lulu #2 Comic Gag Panel Original Art dated 3-2-35 (Saturday Evening Post, 1935). The second Little Lulu cartoon... ever! We sold her very first appearance for over $9,000.00 back in 2005.
    In 1935 when the Saturday Evening Post editors asked Marjorie (Henderson) Buell to develop a replacement feature for Carl Anderson's departing Henry comic strip, Marge decided to use a girl as the new "scamp" character because she felt that there was more fun stuff that a little girl could get away with, over a little boy. Lulu ran in the magazine for an impressive 10 years and spawned a regular comic strip, cartoons, a Broadway production, and even served as a commercial spokestoon for Kleenex© facial tissues. In just her second outing, she was already showing her irrepressible disregard for society's "normal" behavior. Crafted in ink and ink wash over graphite on illustration board with a matted image area of 6.25" x 7". Signed in the image area, and matted out to 12.25" x 13". Toned, otherwise, in Excellent condition.
