    Hal Foster Tarzan#216 Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-28-35 (United Feature Syndicate, 1935). Hal Foster was a master of the action comic strip medium and this Tarzan episode, titled "The Gathering Storm", is a prime example. It has also never been offered on the open market before! Dated April 28, 1935, this large format piece, with an ink over graphite on Bristol board image area of 27.75" x 21.25", is signed and inscribed by Foster in the bottom margin. The Tarzan title is a toning stat paste-up with wrinkles due to glue. Adhesive residue on the top edge. There are light spot stains in Panels 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11, faint smudges around the margins, and pinholes around the margins. The piece has been professionally restored: cleaned, backing that was affixed to the piece was removed, de-acidified, flattened, and newsprint title was reattached. A note detailing the restoration, and a packet detailing provenance, from the Eric Bergman collection (a friend of Foster) are included. In Very Good condition.
