    Lou Fine (as Jack Cortez) Wags [Australia] V3#28 (Jumbo Comics #8) "The Count of Monte Cristo" Story Page Original Art (Editors Press Service, 1938). More familiar to US readers from Jumbo Comics #8, it was actually reprinted there from a previous appearance in the Australian continuation of the UK Wags publication. The British publication had stopped with issue #88, the "Count of Monte Cristo" episode right before this one. The twice-up scale page was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of approximately 15.5" x 22.5" (including the paste-up stat header/logo). There are whiteout corrections on the toned art page. There are minor edge rips and corner damage, along with pinholes in the corners. The logo is a modern day print replacement affixed to the page. In Good condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
