    Description

    Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-28-16 (Newspaper Feature Service, 1916). "The Irrepressible Smithy" is the featured target of Buster's prank this Sunday! It includes the "topper" title panel on a separate sheet of Bristol board. The entire affair is partially hand-colored with water colors as a guide for the printer. As such, characters and things are usually only colored in the first panel that they appear in. Produced in ink over graphite on two sheets of Bristol board with a combined image area of 18.75" x 24". The top section is held on with paper brads on the side margins. There is a 1.5" rip in the center left side (just into Smithy's neck). There is corner damage and overall toning. In Very Good condition. From the Outcault Family Collection.
