    Description

    Phil Davis Mandrake the Magician Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-18-61 (King Features Syndicate, 1961). Originator Lee Falk's spell-weaving hero predicts the phenomenon of teleconferencing with a large-scale tabloid-page episode involving an interplanetary hologram-call. Part-socializing, part-emergency, the visit includes a hint of an imminent cosmic menace. Brilliantly composed for full gee-whiz effect, Davis' art captures the fascination the general public felt in 1961 toward a science-fictional concept that has evolved into science-fact. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 14.5" x 21.25". There is mild toning, and a slight wrinkling at the lower edge. Very Good condition.
