Pogo Sunday Original By Walt Kelly - Burglar School - 1956 For Sale
You are offerding on anoriginal SundayPogo comic strip,published on May 27th, 1956, by the one and onlyWalt Kelly!"Burglar School"
In which Barnstable teaches burglin' to the worms - who was just minding their own business (and escaping a fishing party). As only Barnstable could explain "Bein' a burglar is good healthy indoor work... no blinding sun to burn you... no poisonous fresh air fumes..."
The strip is in good overall shape for it's age, with an fairly even off-white coloring except for handling marks on the outer edge in places (which should be covered if a matte is used). Note the spot of tape residue in the center/top on the edge which may be able to be removed and is not especially noticeable under glass. The strip has the normal few pin holes around
the border, used by Kelly to hold in place while inking. The logo is unique as it is hand inked (not a paste-on as were most of the Sunday strips).
It has a great gag and is a wonderful character study of Barnstable Bear and... the worms!
The artwork itself is hand brushed black ink over blue pencil. Signed "Walt Kelly".
The overall art paper size is approximately 24" by 17" (61 cm x 43 cm). It will be shipped within a plastic wrap, two plywood sheets, and all that covered with new cardboard. If you are not satisfied please return post marked within seven days for refund less shipping charges.!Free shipping within the USA. Thanks for looking!
