    Description

    Jon L. Blummer Hop Harrigan Pin-Up Original Art (undated). As noted by Don Markstein on his Toonopedia site, "All-American Publications launched a lot of famous comic book series, such as The Atom, Hawkman and McSnurtle the Turtle. But its most famous, at least in the wide world beyond comic books, is one a majority of today's comics fans have never even heard of-- Hop Harrigan. The Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, all of which were originally All-American characters, headed up comic books of their own which are still briskly traded in the collector market. But Hop, who mostly stayed in the back pages and appeared on a mere three covers (and had to share the first of them with three other series, only one of which, Scribbly, was the least bit memorable), is the only All-American character adapted into non-comics media during the publisher's existence as a separate company." The popular Hop appeared on the radio and also in movie serials. This piece has an image area of 11.5" x 16.5", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 20" x 25". In Very good condition. From The Art of the Funnies Collection.
