Item Description
"Dondi" was a daily comic strip about a large-eyed war orphan of the same name. Created by Gus Edson and Irwin Hasen, it ran in more than 100 newspapers for three decades (Sept. 25, 1955 to June 8, 1986). Offered here is the pen and ink original art by Hasen for 24 daily strips published from Nov. 2, 1970 to Jan. 1, 1971. Each artboard measures approx. 6.5x18.5" and features two to three panels each. Story revolves around Dondi finding a fawn and nursing it back to health while hunters plan deer hunt. The fawn, named Nibbles, summons Dondi to help his father, a buck that had been shot w/an arrow. In Dondi's attempt top help the deer, he hides them from the hunters and proceeds to get trapped in a ravine. Each has "The Chicago Tribune" copyright strips and Irwin Hasen signature stat attached and backs of most have some preliminary pencil art. A few strips have applied stats, some w/original art overtop. Scattered margin notations/markings and scattered handling wear/dust soiling. Fine overall.
