    Floyd Gottfredson and Al Taliaferro (collectively as Walt Disney) Mickey Mouse Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-19-40 (King Features Syndicate, 1940). This is the very first episode of the story arc "Mickey Mouse Bellhop Detective". The story ran until December 21st, 1940. Wonderful images of Mickey and Minnie that have the feel of the animated shorts of the period. Crafted in ink and Zipatone over graphite on two pieces of Duotone board with a combined image area of 25" x 5.5". The board were stapled to a single sheet of Bristol board at the time of creation. The backside gives the title to this daily: "Mickey Gets Down To Earth". The boards are toned, with some past moisture exposure that has left them slightly rippled, with stains in some panels. The staples have rusted. Overall, in Very Good condition.
