    Description

    Gene Ahern The Nut Bros., Ches and Wal Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-4-34 (NEA Service, Inc., 1934). Ches Nut and Wal Nut were almost as popular as Ahern's famous blowhard character, Major Amos Hoople (of Our Boarding House). The Nut Bros. dispensed groaners by the gallon, puns by the pound, and yocks by the yard -- with an utter disregard for continuity or narrative thrust. More power to them. A sub-feature, "National Nuisances" (at right) inspired Jimmy Hatlo to create They'll Do It Every Time, which originated just two years after this episode had appeared. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Partially hand-tinted, likely by Ahern. Image area, 23" x 8.5". Moderate toning and marginal corner damage. Very Good condition. From the Jack Kent Collection.
