Three separate strips of artboard form complete Sunday page, measuring 22.75x29". Artboards w/India ink art original art for Oct. 28, 1956 Sunday page. Art is by Frank Frazetta and was produced during the period that Frazetta was an assistant to Al Capp. Art features 12 panels from "Stranger In Paradise" storyline, showing Captain Bullmoose meeting doppelgänger actor George Sokolsky, whom Bullmoose tells to give orders to his own bodyguards. Said brutish bodyguards the proceed to beat on Bullmoose before tossing him from the building, much to his delight. Bullmoose tries to reenter, only for Sokolsky, (now lounging in luxury), to order him tossed once more. Bullmoose has had enough and runs before the police come. Last three panels deal w/him going to Dagmar's dressing room (where a trademark busty Frazetta beauty walks by) to see if she will love him for himself, and not the prestige associated w/him. Dagmar's mother Hagmar answers the door to inform him that Dagmar already has a date, which is revealed to be Sokolsky in last panel, much to Bullmoose's chagrin. Bullmoose appears in all but one panel, Sokolsky in six w/Dagmar in last panel only. Capp has signed second to last panel as he always did for Frazetta's art. Sixth panel has UFS copyright strip. Screentone accents to Bullmoose's jacket. Aged strips of tape at left/right center where artboard strips were attached w/some moderate scattered aging along right margin, including some moisture staining to bottom strip at right (which only affects last panel in tiny spot) and upper right corner of top strip. Strips were folded vertically w/bottom strip having some aging along fold line. Artboards are VG overall, but could be matted and framed for VF art display.
