    Description

    Ken Hultgren Goofy Comics #4 Complete 5-Page Story "High Pressure" Original Art (Nedor Publ., 1944). If the art seems reminiscent of Pogo creator Walt Kelly, that's because Hultgren and Kelly shared in common the influence of experience with the Disney studios, and both became masters of the Funny Animal comics idiom. Hultgren's work is by far the edgier -- notably so, in this story: A reptilian salesman named Crock O'Dile peppers his pitch with grim jokes and at length provokes a prospective customer to a murderous rage. Brilliant. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 13.5" x 20". Light toning. Excellent condition.
