    Hal Forrest Tailspin Tommy Hand-Colored Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-18-34 (Bell Syndicate, 1934). Tommy and the gang are in a tough spot as Barbara clings to the side of a cliff after their plane is forced down onto a plateau. This hand-colored Sunday is numbered #231, and the late Jerry Weist's Comic Art Price Guide notes, "Only the first 150 Sunday pages are hand-colored by creator Hal Forrest." The companion topper strip, "Four Aces", is a modern print replacement paste-up, even though the title panel appears to be the original. The image area of this spectacular Sunday measures approximately 21.75" x 28.5". Slight toning, pinholes in the margins, edge chipping, creasing and wear, with staining and handling wear. The piece has signs of restoration, with added black ink in the title and Forrest credits. Signed by Forrest at the bottom of the last panel and in Good condition.
