This lot contains a whole bunch of pages of artwork by Percy Crosby, a famous comic artist of the 1920s and ’30s. His most famous creation was Skippy, an early kid comic strip. His style was loose and flowing and exceptional! I can only show a few samples of what is included. Please note that the vast majority of the artwork is in black and white (with gray tone washes), though there are some color pieces as shown. Most of what is included comes from the pages of the old Life magazine. There are some great ads and a few “Skippy’s Letters” columns. The bulk of this grouping are in the format of the two black and white sample photos, the full page “strip.” There are about 40 full-page Skippy pieces. There are another dozen or so pages that are kids, but I don’t think they are Skippy. And yet another dozen or so that are clipped panels and portions of pages, a few of which include Skippy. (Imagine the time and cost required if you tried to put this collection together!) I did notice that there are some doubles, but not many. Sometimes you will also be pleasantly surprised by what is on the backs of these pieces. Along with some ads, I noted artwork by Drayton, Gibson, Held, and others, along with some instances of more Crosby artwork. The pages are in good to very good condition: some small tears here and there, light discoloration, etc. But if you collect Crosby or Skippy, these will be a nice addition! (Due to eBay policies, I leave feedback only after the buyer has received their item and expressed their satisfaction. Please also see my return policy.)
