    Description

    Gene Colan "Bell and Bud" Try-Out Comic Page Original Art Group (c. 1941). An exceptional set of "Teen Humor" try-out pages from Gene Colan's early portfolio, done while still in his teens himself. One page shows the "Bell and Bud" characters, with added watercolor; the inked story (with balloon captions written in pencil) is seven pages, including a title/splash page. In addition, there are two page fragments of another feature titled "The Kapers of Kitten" and a title/splash page for a feature called "Big and Little." All are drawn in ink over graphite on thin board, with an average image area of 11" x 16". All the pages are extremely fragile; most have multiple tears and/or small areas of paper loss. Overall condition is Fair.
