    Description

    Tony Franco Popeye's Birthday Wish 90th Anniversary Homage Original Art (National Cartoonists Society, 2019). J. Wellington Wimpy makes an uncharacteristically generous gesture for Popeye's milestone. Popeye is flabbergasticated. Wimpy should stick with mooching hamburgers. Brilliant interpretive tribute from Franco, a veteran of the kid-comics lines of both Marvel Comics and DC Comics. Ink and Design Markers over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 8" x 10". Excellent condition.

    Proceeds from the winning bids in this special NCS "Popeye the Sailor's 90th Birthday" auction will go to the NCS Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) charity that works in tandem with the National Cartoonists Society to advance the ideals and standards of the cartooning profession, to stimulate and encourage aspiring cartoonists through scholarships and educational programs, and to provide financial assistance to cartoonists and their families in times of hardship.
