    Description

    Otto Messmer (as Pat Sullivan) Felix the Cat Sunday Comic Strip with Rare Remarque Original Art dated 3-13-32 (King Features Syndicate, 1932). Felix is charged with the task of teaching music lessons to King Leo's animal subjects -- a daunting task -- in this highly stylized Sunday. Otto Messmer had been creating the Felix the Cat comic strip for nearly a decade already before this jungle farce was released! We love how polite the rat is in Panel 3. Great fluidity of movement in this one, almost like animation storyboards. The entire affair was produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 20.5" x 16.25". It is signed by Messmer, with a remarqued Felix head, in the lower right margin; this is something we've never seen from Mr. Messmer! The board is toned, and slightly brittle on the edges, with some edge/corner wear and chipping. There are minor stains in some panels; however, it is in overall Very Good condition. Righty-O!
