    Gary Hallgren Merton of the Movement "Pollyanna Pals" Page 4 Original Art (Last Gasp, 1971). After the Air Pirates comic stalled out from lawsuits brought on by Disney, many of these same creators continued their practice of drawing in the styles of classic newspaper strip artists for other titles. Bobby London edited a couple of books with most of the Air Pirates artists participating, Left-Field Funnies and Merton of the Movement. For Merton, artist Gary Hallgren updated Cliff Sterrett's classic strip Polly and her Pals for an "adults only" four-pager that resembles four Sunday Comics pages. The gang throws a naked pool party in this, by far, the best page of the bunch, titled "Pool Shot." The art is in ink over blue pencil underdrawings on three conjoined pieces of Bristol board. Overall image size is 12.5" x 18". Very Good condition with minor handling wear. From the Bobby London Collection.
