    Description

    Bill Ward - Torchy Preliminary Artwork Original Art (undated). Bill Ward had a very prolific cartooning career and penciled countless pages for mainstream comic books, ranging from Captain Marvel and Blackhawk to his own creation, Torchy. Eventually though, Ward moved away from the comic book field, and drew panel cartoons -- the kind men like --- for men's magazines. Here we have a fantastic preliminary sketch featuring his creation. Created in graphite on illustration paper with an image area of 7.5" x 9". Light handling and edge wear, soft creases/creasing, and faint smudging. Signed by Ward in the lower right. In Very Good condition.
