    Description

    Marie Severin - Self-Caricature on EC Postcard Original Art (1954). In response to little Bobby Harmon's letter to EC Comics, staffer Marie Severin sent back this postcard, with a full-color cartoon of herself drawn at the bottom. The postcard reads, "Dear Bobby, Just re-read your very nice letter of Dec. 28 -- which I meant to answer long before this. Thanks for your interest in 'it' (which, if you remember you you (sic) said I really had). Sincerely, Marie Severin." What the "it" they were discussing was, we can only speculate. However, this is a charming illustration, and having it rendered on a vintage EC postcard is just icing on the pie. The postcard measures 3.25" x 5.5" and is in Very Good condition, with a light diagonal crease that does not affect the artwork. A delightful memento of the glory days of EC! From the collection of Bobby Harmon.
