    Description

    George Herriman Krazy Kat Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 9-25-38 (King Features Syndicate, 1938). Something's gone topsy-turvy in Coconino County -- Ignatz is in the jailhouse at the beginning of the strip, not the end, and Krazy wants to know why! It's all explained in typical Herriman logic in this funny Sunday, featuring all three of the main characters, mentioned by name. Notice too, how in this first-rate episode that Krazy and Offissa Pupp are conscious of the fact that they are characters in a comic strip. As always, Ignatz has been found "guilty" of having thrown a brick, but this time he is jailed because he will throw a brick tomorrow! It's no wonder Krazy Kat was the favorite of intellectuals in the 1930s -- it certainly wasn't your typical gag-a-day feature! This example features all of the classic Herriman art elements such as shifting points of view, morphing backgrounds, and innovative panel designs. This Sunday has an image area of approximately 14.5" x 22", and it has been matted and Plexiglas framed to an overall size of 20.75" x 28.5". The art is in Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
