    Description

    Harold Gray Little Orphan Annie Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-15-59 (News Syndicate Co., Inc., 1959). Oliver Warbucks gets the drop on a murderous gang in this stirring, large-scale spread from the long-running crime-and-horror feature. And yes, Gray considered Annie to be a crime-and-horror feature -- quite apart from the sweetness-and-light image that Hollywood and Broadway have long imposed upon it. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 25.5" x 17". The page is composed of individual panels, pasted into place in the customary three-tier grid form (half of a Sunday-newspaper page), with seams as a natural consequence. Light toning. Excellent condition. From the Ray Edw Collection.
