    Dave Tendlar - Original Cover Art for Harvey Comic Hits #60 "Paramount Animated Comics" (Harvey, 1953). This early cover marks the first comic book appearance of Herman and Katnip, stars of the popular Paramount cartoon series. It's business as usual for the duo, as they go about their daily schedule of cat and mouse. Dave Tendlar is the artist responsible for this delightful demonstration of take and retake, a very animated rendering of these two lovable characters. This issue helped usher in the Harvey age of children's humor comics; included within its pages were the first Buzzy the Crow, the second Harvey Casper appearance, and the third Baby Huey. The art measures 13.5" x 20", with an image area of 11.75" x 18". There's some general aging apparent overall, and some minor white-out usage, but the artwork is in fine condition. The logo and indicias at the top are recent photocopy replacements.
