    Description

    Riley Thomson Bobo & Herman Daily Comic Strip Demo Original Art (c. 1940s). From a veteran Disney and Warner Brothers animator, and a Disney comics artist, Thomson tried a strip of his own with Bobo & Herman, which may have been too close to the Disney standard to get a break (Herman, the dog, bears more than a passing resemblance to Pluto the Pup, and the figures in Panels 1-3 could have been lifted from Disney's 1935 cartoon, "Mickey's Man Friday"). The blank space at left would have been reserved for a narrative caption. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 22" x 4.75". Light toning. In Very Good condition.
