Sheldon Mayer - Sugar & Spike #52 Page Original Art, Group of 28 (DC, 1964).
    Using his own kids for inspiration, Mayer created Sugar & Spike, which many comic fans consider among the funniest comic book series ever done. Only page 1 of the final story, "An Adventure With an Umbrella" is missing from this near-complete issue. This lot includes the art for the stories, "The Day the Baby Vanished - Slightly!" (complete 6-page story), "Pint-Size Pin-Ups" (complete 2-page story), "New Adventure with Grown-Up Talk!" (complete 6-page story), "Write Your Own Comic Page!" (complete 1-page feature), "A Lesson in Sharing" (complete 6-page story), "Look at all the Letters from Our Readers!" (a production piece paste-up of the letters page), "An Adventure with an Umbrella!" (an incomplete story, missing page 1, so 7 pages of the 8-page story). Most of the pages have an image area of 10" x 15", but some of the pages are larger and have an image area of 13" x 18". The pages average Very Good condition.
