    Description

    Harvey Comics Artist Blondie Comics Monthly #140 Cover Original Art (Harvey Comics, 1957). The Harvey funnybooks did as much as the Hearst empire's King Features Syndicate to sustain a high profile for Chic Young's domestic-gag feature, Blondie. The comic-book ghost-artists (including some of Young's assistants) made the Harvey books more rambunctious than the newspaper feature -- as demonstrated in this slapstick scenario. Some editor altered the expression on the face of Daisy the Dog before publication: Her smile (seen here) changed to a grimace on the published cover. The blank upper portion was reserved for the comic-book title. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 7.5" x 10.5". Moderate toning and light pencil-smudging. Very Good condition.
