    Description

    Will Eisner and Tex Blaisdell Baseball Comics #1 Story Page 8 Original Art (Will Eisner, 1949). The first game in the new stadium has Rube's girlfriend Sunny worried, and bad guy Cleat Biggers' Badgers are ready to play, on this page from Will Eisner's sports-themed comic. This page simply drips with that lovely Eisner style! Renowned for his work on his crimefighting character The Spirit, Eisner even managed to work the word "Spirit" into the first panel of this page. As a hidden bonus, there are a couple of nice pure graphite practice drawings of "Lulu" on the backside. Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.25" x 18". The paste-up masthead and footer are missing, leaving glue residue in those areas, and there are pinholes in the margins. The page is toned; otherwise, in Very Good condition.
