    Leslie Turner Wash Tubbs and Captain Easy Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 9-10-46 (Newspaper Enterprise Association, 1946). Turner, one of Texas' finer gifts to the comics profession, took over Wash Tubbs from fellow Texan Roy Crane. who had left to start a post-World War II adventure strip called Buz Sawyer. By the time of this splendidly nightmarish sequence, heroic Captain Easy had nosed scrappy Washington Tubbs out of the leading role. All heroism aside, Easy seems incapable of rescuing a fellow explorer from what must be a fatal fall. Brilliant use of chemical-shading technique to achieve a near-photographic realism. Ink over graphite on Craftint board. Image area, 16" x 4.75". Faint toning. Excellent condition.
