    Description

    Frank King Gasoline Alley Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-12-21 (Tribune, 1921). From a time when comic strips ran big and were drawn even bigger. Domestic shenanigans with Walt Wallet and his adopted infant, Skeezix. Brilliantly drawn and dramatically paced, with Walt finding out that Skeezix's seemingly ideal new nanny is not such a prize, after all. The title of this strip, at right in King's handwriting, is "Hired and Fired." Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 17.5" x 5.5". Overall toning, marginal staining, and one tear (repaired). Very Good condition.
