Item Description
Along with "Crusader Rabbit," Telecomics was the first animated series expressly made for television, running from 1949-1951. Cartoons were not really animated, but showed still pictures with voice-overs. Lot consists of three 9-5/8x11.5" stiff art pages with India ink/watercolor art showing Rick Rack, Special Agent, one with his sidekick. Each comes with matching layout sheets done in pencil. Rick Rack was a Dick Tracy/Jim Hardy-inspired character. Dick Moores, noted for his art on the Jim Hardy comic strip, was designer and co-producer of the Telecomic series. He was also an assistant to Chester Gould on Dick Tracy. Also comes with 8.25x9.5" cut-out watercolor/ink image of Rick Rack with matching red pencil layout sheet. All pieces have scattered moderate margin wear along tops, mostly to the layout sheets. Layout sheets also have some moisture staining along tops. Paintings themselves remain VF/Exc. overall. Nice lot for this little known TV series.
