    Jorge Longaron Friday Foster Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-03-70 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1970). High-fashion model Friday Foster proves "perfect ... for the Afro touch," raves a trendsetting designer, conspiring to keep Friday working for him despite prior commitments. Heavy Deco/Pop Art glamour, here, with fashions and furnishings to complete the avant-garde atmosphere. Seen here only six weeks after its launching, the trailblazing African-American adventure strip had by now gathered sufficient momentum to rank among the finer mystery-and-intrigue features, at a time when narrative-continuity comics were in general decline. Within a few years, the title character would inspire a feature-length motion picture starring Pam Grier. Longaron's artwork has a cinematic momentum all its own. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 16.5" x 5". Light toning and marginal markings. Excellent condition.
