    Description

    Morris Weiss (as M.S. Weiss) Mickey Finn Daily and Sunday Comic Strip Original Art Group of 5 (McNaught Syndicate, Inc., 1971-74). A year after the death of creator Lank Leonard, Weiss finally began signing his name to Mickey Finn, an upbeat police melodrama which he had long ghosted. This generous selection finds Weiss at a peak of accomplishment, channeling Leonard's genial Irishness while adding layers of characterization. Weiss had been Leonard's assistant during 1936-43. Weiss returned in 1960 and gradually took charge as Leonard went into semi-retirement. Inscribed, including nods to musician and comics collector Don Lineberger. Included are the Sunday episode for 3-7-71, along with the dailies for 1-13-71, 1-20-71, 11-21-74, and 11-18-74. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with image areas of 16.75" x 4.75" (dailies) and 19" x 12" (Sunday). Average Very Good condition.
