Greetings. You are bidding on the original art for the daily comic strip CAPTAIN EASY written by Jim Lawrence and drawn by BILL CROOKS.     

 

Publication Information and Description: This particular daily comic strip was published on March 30, 1970 and features three panels. The artwork area is approximately 16” by 5”. The strip is signed "Crooks & Lawrence" and dated "3-30".  The strip is © 1970 by the Chicago Tribune, as per the copyright indicia.

 

This is NOT a copy or stat or proof. This is the original art, drawn (pen and ink) by Bill Crooks.  Wonderful pen work and ink wash by a master of the comic strip form who followed in the footsteps of Roy Crane and Leslie Turner.  An excellent example of the later years of the strip.  

 

This strip features Captain Easy and Wash Tubbs who are searching for "Tigra" but instead find Sam Gully, who looks like he's seen some better days.  .      

 

Character and Artist Information:

 

CAPTAIN EASY was an American comic strip which ran from 1933 to 1988.  Initially written and drawn by Roy Crane, the strip (initially called "Wash Tubbs" in daily format and "Captain Easy Soldier of Fortune" in Sunday format, became the quintessential action adventure strip.  Easy was "a chivalrous Southern adventurer in the classic adventure-hero mold. After a series of globe-trotting adventures, Easy enlisted in the US Army during World War II, afterwards becoming a private detective."  Leslie Turner took over the strip in 1943 after Crane left to draw Buz Sawyer.  Turner's assistants, Lawrence and Crooks, took over the strip upon Turner's retirement in 1969. 

 

Condition: This art is in overall excellent condition. There are no stats or paste-overs, white-out or corrections. Full margins all around.  Minor spots, smudges and stains to art.       

 

Don’t let this one pass you by. A ‘must' for “Captain Easy” or Crooks fans, comic book or strip or illustration art collectors, or anyone who appreciates a true piece of Americana and a beautifully rendered piece of art.
