    Dan DeCarlo Laugh Comics #379 Cover (Partial) Original Art (Archie Comics, 1983). A slapstick masterpiece, here -- and an essence of DeCarlo's value as a definitive Archie artist. Some previous owner has trimmed away the Laugh logotype and the lower edge of the art, but the soul of the piece remains. Archie Andrews takes a pratfall on the beach, spilling food all over School Principal Weatherbee. Dowdy teacher Miss Grundy is oblivious. Not often that one experiences the spectacle of seeing Miss Grundy and Mr. Weatherbee in bathing attire. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 13" x 13". Moderate toning and adhesive staining. Irregular trim at upper edge. Good condition.
