    Description

    Stanley Link The Dailys Daily Original Art Comic Strip dated 8-31-48 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1948). A severe twist on the family-humor idiom popularized by George McManus (Bringing Up Father), The Dailys takes the palm for its depiction of creepy kinfolks. Dan Daily discovers that a "medicine" taken by resident Aunt Agatha "contains over 70 per cent alcohol." The timely reference is to a real-world drugstore medication called Hadacol, which triggered a booze addiction in many users. Link had a weird sense of humor and used it to full advantage. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 19.75" x 6". Excellent condition, with light-to-moderate overall toning.
