    V. T. Hamlin Alley Oop Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-24-35 (NEA Service, 1935). It seems that Dinny the dinosaur is smarter than Alley in this magnificent ink over graphite on two pieces of conjoined Bristol board daily from 1935. Not many artists can match Hamlin's peerless penwork, or the seemingly 3-D depth that he achieves in his panels. The image area measures 20.5" x 4.5" and is in Very Good condition. It has been folded in half, the borders have been cut irregularly, and there are some pencil notations along the edges, outside of the image area. Overall paper toning, marginal staining, and handling wear have this early strip in Very Good condition.
