DescriptionAl Avison (attributed) - Original Cover Art for Blondie (Harvey, 1959). Dagwood is sweating with embarrassment as Blondie tries to size up a pair of long johns in the department store. Chic Young's immortal comic strip had a long run in comic book form at Harvey, and this charming cover -- attributed to Harvey workhorse Al Avison -- demonstrates the enduring popularity of these beloved characters. Condition is excellent overall; the background figures on the left are drawn on vellum which as been glued to the board, but they are original art; a similar piece seems to have been lost from the right side of the board. The logo stat is missing, with glue stains behind. Measures 9.5" x 12.25", with an image area of 7" x 10.5".
