    Description

    Milton Caniff and Mell Lazarus MAD Magazine #89 Comic Strip Illustration Original Art (EC, 1964). From the Strip Teasers Dept: Someone had the bright idea to take an actual Milton Caniff Steve Canyon comic strip, cut it up, and then give it to Mell Lazarus to complete. The characters morph into a take on Lazarus' Miss Peach series. Created on Bristol board, Caniff's original art was cut and pasted to another Bristol board where Lazarus added more graphite and ink work to produce a composite strip of 21.75" x 6.5". There is slight tanning wear, more so in the older Caniff art pieces, and a bit of handling wear. There is a touch of glue residue near some of the paste-ups, and they are starting to come loose. Overall in Very Good condition.
