    Description

    Edgar Church Fighting Cowgirl Preliminary Comics-Panel Original Art (c. 1940s). Fellow advertising artists could only envy Church's long-term success in that competitive arena. Even so, Church harbored a secret ambition to become a published comic-book illustrator. He envisioned a high-concept Western comics series, often involving tough frontierswomen -- such as the two-fisted cowgirl pictured here. He never made the leap, but not for want of trying. (Church also is the guy responsible for the famous Mile High Collection of historic comic books.) Graphite on pulpwood Big Chief notebook stock, intact but for a ragged upper edge, as if torn when new from an adhesive pad. Excellent condition, given the delicate nature of the paper.
