    Description

    Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-10-08 (American-Journal Examiner, 1908). Buster Brown introduces his new friend Plantagenet Montgomery Jones to his own style of hi-jinx and pranks. It does not go well for Buster. There is a lovely shot of Mary Jane (and Tige) in the opening panel, and the image of Buster in the last panel is a riot! Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 18.75" x 24.5". Dated only as "May 10", this is most likely from 1908, as the only other viable year would be 1914. The piece is partially watercolored for the printer's reference. The toned board has some corner damage, pinholes in the margins, and a crack rip in the left side. There are also spot stains in the lower left corner, and a small piece missing from the top edge. In Good condition.
