Mutt & Jeff - 11/13/1966

AL SMITH (1902-1986) ghosted the Mutt and Jeff strip for years (as well as drawing the topper, Cicero's Cat), but it was not until the death of creator Bud Fisher that Smith began signing his own name to the strip. He was active in the National Cartoonist's Society, and helped many upcoming talents find work in the industry.

This original art Sunday comic strip for Mutt and Jeff is dated 11-13-66. The image area measures approximately 17.25" x 19" and the art is in very good condition, with some slight moisture warping and overall aging. The top tier was cut and retaped
