    Robert Butts - Original Art for Bob Swift #3, Complete 17-page Story (Fawcett, 1951). An incredible find from comics' Golden Age, this complete story tells the tale of a bear hunt in the Kodiak Islands. Making this story especially collectible is the fact that it includes three incredible splash pages: the title splash with the giant bear menacing two unsuspecting hunters, a beautiful page with a bear hunting for salmon, and a stunning page with a bear reared up on its hind legs. These pages really have to be seen to be fully appreciated. Measuring a big 22.5" x 14.25", with an image area of approximately 18" x 13", these pages are clean, lacking the intrusive blue pencil colorists markings common to Fawcett art of this period. Several pieces also feature pencil sketches and layouts on the reverse. An exciting addition to any collection.
