Warren Kremer - Original Cover Art for Little Dot #1 (Harvey, 1953). She was cute as a button and sweet as a peach, but let's face it -- this little lass was obsessive-compulsive! Driven by an insatiable need to decorate all facets of the world with her favorite pattern, the adorable Ms. Polka never ceased to get herself into all kinds of wacky adventures. Debuting (in a noticeably different form) in Sad Sack #1, the spot-crazy Dot was among the earliest of Harvey's iconic characters to earn her own title. Need we mention the historical importance of this premiere issue? Little Dot #1 featured the auspicious debuts of the insanely wealthy Richie Rich and the insanely corpulent Little Lotta. Add to that heady stew the fact that this cartoon charmer was rendered by the greatest artist on the Harvey payroll -- the legendary Warren Kremer, natch -- and you've run out of reasons not to bid on this epochal piece of original art. Measuring 10" x 13.5", with an image area of 7.5" x 10.5", this piece is exceptionally clean, with some white-out along the bottom edge. Two options are provided for the logo: the original stats are largely present, with some missing letters tastefully replaced, or a uniform replacement has also been provided.
