    William E. Hill Among Us Mortals/The Hill Page Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-17-49 (News Syndicate, 1949). Hill's long-running satire of quirky personalities works on two levels: As brilliant, caricatured portraiture, and as social criticism -- practically a genetic template for the modern-day work of Drew Friedman. This splendid specimen dissects the more annoying guests and inmates of a metropolitan hospital, centered upon the scary presence of a nurse with a hypodermic fetish. Ink over graphite and blue-wax pencil on two-ply kid-finish bond, with an image area of 17.5" x 22.5". Original pasted-in lettering (typeset) is stained by adhesive residue. Blue shading indicates instructions for the engraver. Moderate tanning and marginal staining. Good condition.
