    Description

    Frank King Gasoline Alley Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-10-46 (Chicago Tribune, 1946). This hand-colored Sunday strip features Corky, with Skeezix in the first panel. The art is ink and watercolor over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 17" x 21". It is signed in the first panel, and has a funny "Tom Sawyer" joke in it. We think the best joke on the page is however, is in the personalized message on the bottom margin... it is signed "To Jimmy Hatlo: I'm sending this a bit late. I'll do it every time! Frank King, 1946". Jimmy Hatlo's own long-running famous comic strip was titled They'll Do It Every Time. This Sunday has tanning, with pinholes in the corners and it is affixed to a backing board in a matting. Overall in Excellent condition.
