    Description

    Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 10-11-08 (Newspaper Feature Service, 1908). A sweet Buster Brown strip with a real message. The little scamp is tugging at your heart strings on this one, as he convinces a burglar to change his ways. Created in ink with some watercolor over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 18.75" x 23". As was common at the time, the strip is watercolored as a reference to the printer, but only for the first appearance of a character or scene. That's why it is only partially colored. There is a date of October 11 in the bottom margin. There is corner damage, and multiple pinholes in the image area. In Very Good condition. From the Outcault Family Collection.

    More Information: EDIT: Identified as from 1908.
