    Bill Ward Snafu V2#1 Illustration Original Art (Humorama, 1956). This single panel gag cartoon features a classically beautiful Bill Ward female, rich textures, and some lovely curves and shadows. The punchline is "Here's your ring back!" she drops a Pawn Shop ticket. Published in a January issue of 1956, it is possible it was Snappy instead of Snafu. It was later reprinted in the May 1964 issue of Zip. Crafted in Conte crayon, ink, and ink wash, with white paint highlights, over graphite. It is on a sheet of 16" x 21.75" brown paper that has been taped to a slightly larger Bristol board. Signed in the lower image area, it is in Very Good condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
