    Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-6-17 (Newspaper Feature Service, 1917). After consulting with Tige the talking dog, Buster conspires to teach dogs to not chase cats in the episode titled "It's all Hereditary". Great images of the dogs with some funny lines also! Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 18.75" x 20". The board has been folded horizontally through the top image area and has a 1.75" tear in the bottom left panel. There are glue residue stains near the top syndicate strip paste-up. Also, the first panel has a paste-up image of Tige affixed over the image area with a blue pencil line around the three figures. It's possible this was done at a later date to stat the group of the three of them for other purposes. Signed in the last panel, this is in Good condition. From the Outcault Family Collection.
