    Description

    George McManus Bringing Up Father Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-12-42 (King Features Syndicate, 1942). Jiggs is the titular father of this strip, however by the end he looks more like the mummy! Bad puns such as this abound in this classic comic strip parody of day-to-day life. Produced in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The strip is lightly tanned, with some handling. The Zipatone has discolored and some is missing, otherwise in Very Good condition.
