    Raeburn Van Buren Abbie an' Slats Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-13-45 (United Feature Syndicate, 1945). From a pivotal year for the long-running strip: Co-creator Al Capp (also of Li'l Abner) turns the writing of Abbie an' Slats over to his brother, Elliot Caplin, who rises to the responsibility with a comedy of romantic errors involving hapless Waldo Clinkle and rival sweethearts. Central character Bathless Groggins has a cameo. Signed and inscribed by Van Buren. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, tinted in watercolor by the artist. The image area measures 22.5" x 14.5", with light toning. Excellent condition.
