    George McManus Bringing Up Father with Rosie's Beau Topper Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-20-43 (King Features Syndicate, 1943). McManus' usual attention to fine-lined detail is on full display in this Sunday. From the delicate and graceful features of Rosie in the companion topper strip, to the detailed background of the parlor in the bottom two tiers, McManus had an eye for style. Created in ink over graphite on two sheets of conjoined Bristol board with a total image area of 16.25" x 21.25". The Rosie logo is a stat paste-up, the page has overall toning and smudging, and marginal production notes, with a bit of edge/corner wear. In Very Good condition.
