    Jack Burnley and Charles Paris Batman Sunday Comic Strip #120 Original Art dated 2-17-46 (McClure Syndicate, 1946). This specific strip is important, as it is where we first learn the Penguin's real name of Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, and features some great images of the fine-feathered foe with Batman and Robin. Although signed by Bob Kane, the actual art was done by Jack Burnley and Charles Paris. It was written by Alvin Schwartz who signed and personalized it "To Joe" in the bottom margin. It is produced in ink over graphite on two pieces of Bristol board conjoined with tape on the backside. They have a combined image area of 19.25" x 25.75". The boards are tanned, with pinholes and handling wear. There is water damage to the bottom left corner, along with corner wear on all the others. The logo is a replacement copy, pasted into place. Overall this is in Very Good condition and is a fantastic piece of comic history.
