    Description

    Tom Hill (as Ed Dodd) Mark Trail Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-7-70 (Publishers-Hall Syndicate, 1970). One of the most beautifully drawn strips in the history of the idiom, Mark Trail prizes naturalism and wildlife conservation over all other interests and makes a point of emphasizing the natural world as preferable to civilization. Creator Dodd was indeed a cartoonist as well as a writer, but over the long term he had entrusted Hill with the art chores. The focus of this large-scale gem is the Timber Wolf. Mark Trail himself puts in a token appearance. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 22" x 6". Excellent condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
