    Description

    Harvey Artist Blondie Comics Monthly #44 Complete 5-Page Story "Magic Maker" (Harvey Comics, 1952). Though technically loyal to the originator, Chic Young, the Harvey Comics Blondies are a breed apart in terms of attitude and slapstick extravagance. Here, the unbilled artist affects a 1930s-style Art Deco aspect to put Dagwood Bumstead in the science-fictional role of a mad scientist, obsessed with inventing a "disappearance liquid." The newspapers' Blondie would never have made Dagwood a candidate for a strait-jacket, but here -- like we said, a breed apart. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 9.5" x 14". Varied degrees of toning, and in Very Good to Excellent condition.
