    Description

    Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-28-15 (American-Journal Examiner, 1915). Buster has a plan. Tige sums it up best, "Whatever you are going to do - it is wrong, mind that." The strips where Buster pranks the housemaids are some of our favorites. The Sunday ends with a somber and touching anti-war sentiment. Included is a wonderful header with a good gag in it as well! Crafted in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 18.75" x 20", and the header is on a 19.75" x 8" section of Bristol board with a paste-up section of hand-typed paper. As was the process at the time, this is partially watercolored. Each character, scene, and item was colored the first time it turns up in the Sunday, and the printer is supposed to use that as a guide for any further appearances. The board is toned, with corner damage and a couple of minor stains. In Very Good condition. From the Outcault Family Collection.
