    William E. Hill The Hill Page/Essays in Picture Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-21-43 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1943). W. E. Hill takes a look at "Shoppers" on this Sunday's edition of his popular caricature comic strip (which is extremely similar to his Among Us Mortals strip) that examines everyday people and situations, with insightful (and comical) captions. His deft inkwork, using a combination of crosshatching and stipple, brings an amazing life-like quality to faces look like "the people next door". Crafted in ink over graphite on place with an image area of 17.5" x 24.5". The captions are paste-up, with some discoloration, and several along the bottom section are missing, leaving glue residue in their place. The syndicate strip paste-up is dated 1942 in error as this was published in 1943. The strip talks of shortages, and this art is in a thin paper stock instead of Bristol board. This could be related to war-time paper shortages as well. Overall in Very Good condition.
