    Description

    Richard F. Outcault Buster Brown Sunday Comic Strip Original Art (Newspaper Feature Service, 1907). As the title indicates, we get to meet Buster's name-sake in "Uncle Buster is a dear old soul." Buster Brown, of course, is a scamp of the worst sort. This undated Sunday feature was produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board. The piece was then affixed to a large sheet of illustration board and trimmed to approximately 19.5" x 25". This cuts right through the top tier which had the logo and story title. The page is partially hand-colored with watercolor to give indications to the printer. The piece has edge and corner damage. In Good condition. From the Outcault Family Collection.
