Krazy Kat George Herriman Art Strip Signed

Original George Herriman art strip signed “Herriman”, dated 31 May 1942. “Krazy Kat” first appeared in 1913 in William Randolph Hearst’s newspaper, the “New York Evening Journal.” The strip instantly became a favorite of Hearst, who furnished Herriman with a lifetime contract and insisted that the strip run in all of his papers. The comic strip, which was set in Coconino County, Arizona, where Herriman had a vacation home, mixed Herriman’s native Creole dialect with alliterative and rhyming word play, absurdist humor, social commentary, and a recurring action of a mouse who throws a brick at a cat. In this 10-panel strip, Krazy Kat quizzes Mr. Kenga Roo and finds himself deceived by appearances, when out of Kenga Roo’s pouch springs his son, and then, from the son’s pouch, his son, and just when Krazy thinks he’s seen enough, out springs the great-granddaughter, Fannie, from the grandson’s pouch. The last panel features Herriman’s quirky characters, Ignatz Mouse and Gooseberry Sprig, watching Krazy, obviously disturbed, hopping off into the expansive Arizona landscape. This strip features an additional horizontal panel that was introduced in 1938: Krazy and Ignatz watch a reclining rattle snake who’s kept awake by his tail. Ignatz explains: “His tail is nervous – it keeps him awake.” Strip, measuring 17″ x 24″, has a few stains in spots, pencil notes along bottom and is framed to an overall size of 19.25″ x 28″. Near fine condition. Excellent Krazy Kat George Herriman art.  Sold for $9,500.

Sunday Krazy Kat George Herriman Art Strip Signed

Original Crazy Kat George Herriman art Sunday Strip signed in pen and ink on stiff paper, dated 16 May 1943. “Krazy Kat” first appeared in 1913 in William Randolph Hearst’s newspaper, the “New York Evening Journal.” The comic strip, which was set in Coconino County, Arizona, where Herriman had a vacation home, mixed Herriman’s native Creole dialect with alliterative and rhyming word play, absurdist humor, social commentary and a recurring motif of a mouse who throws a brick at a cat. The strip became a favorite of Hearst, who furnished Herriman with a lifetime contract and insisted that the strip run in all of his papers. In this 20-panel Sunday strip, Ignatz Mouse is on trial for brick throwing. The scales of justice are manipulated as Ignatz hires Hoot Zoot Soot, the Mesmeric Marvel, to hypnotize the judge to rule in Ignatz’s favor. After Ignatz is free, and is extorted by Hoot Zoot to pay an additional fee, he attempts to unsuccessfully hypnotize the brickmaker, Kolin Kelly, into giving him a brick. Herriman appends the strip at the bottom horizontal panel showing a hypnotized Ignatz attempting to throw a brick at Krazy. Strip, measuring 16.5″ x 25″, has minor soiling along edges, the number “64” written in blue pencil at top left and is framed to an overall size of 19.25″ x 27.75″. Very good condition overall. A fine example of Herriman’s work.  Nice George Herriman Krazy Kat comic art. Sold for $9,500

”Prince Valiant” Sunday Artwork by Hal Foster From 1939 — Perhaps the Most Recognizable Artwork by Hal Foster From ”Prince Valiant”, the Majestic Andelkrag Castle

One of the greatest pieces of artwork by Hal Foster in his career, the original artwork for the 120th ”Prince Valiant” Sunday comic strip from 28 May 1939. In this instantly recognizable piece — featured on the cover of Fantagraphics’ ”Prince Valiant Vol. 2: 1939-1940” and in numerous ”Prince Valiant” publications — Val sees the foreboding castle of Andelkrag in person, surrounded by Huns as they prepare to attack it. The six panel strip measures 26” x 34.5”, (the large Andelkrag panel measures 17” x 21” by itself), with incredible detail showing the seemingly impregnable fortress, the mountains behind it, the flames roiling up aside it and Prince Valiant standing upon a hillside, gazing at its beauty and enormity. In this strip, Val makes his approach and plunges into the river moat at darkness, to find a fire-raft built by the Huns in order to destroy Andelkrag’s bridge. As Prince Valiant destroys their handiwork, the Huns vow revenge in return. Artwork is signed by Foster on the second panel, inscribed to ”Edward W. Larson / with friendly greetings / Hal Foster”. With King Features Syndicate, Inc. label on fifth panel, with 1939 copyright. The date of 28 May 1939 appears on the fourth panel, along with ”120”, the number of this Prince Valiant strip in the life of the series. Artwork is mounted to board and matted to a size of 33” x 41.5”, with matting strips separating the panels. With minute amount of soiling, artwork is in near fine condition. Accompanied by the color newsprint of this artwork and two ”Prince Valiant” books featuring this strip. Sold for $70,461.

”Prince Valiant” Comic Strip by Hal Foster From 5 October 1941

Original “Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur” strip in two parts, dated 5 October 1941. In this chapter, we witness the wizard Belsatan cast a powerful spell for the return of his wife and its dramatic aftermath (which is “beyond description!”). In earlier action, Belsatan had concocted a scheme to use Val to get rid of his beautiful, but nagging wife, Acidia. The schemed worked, but the wizard soon grew lonely, leading to the action featured in this strip, a fantastic example by Hal Foster, the strip’s creator, working at the absolute top of his game. Foster inscribes the strip to his “favorite comic artist ‘Chick’ Young”. Hand-drawn strip measures 29″ x 15″ and 29″ x 22″. Both parts of the strip are mounted, with very light toning, overall very good to near fine. From the estate of “Blondie” creator, Chic Young. Sold for $27,981.
