For this Family Dog favorite master poster artist Rick Griffin created his version of the “Sunday Funnies”. In 1999 Stanley Mouse told Mark Powers that he created the second panel from the right in the bottom row. He signed the panel but his signature is so small that you cannot see it. In any event this is a poster that always enjoys high demand because of it’s great design bargain price and the fact it was created by one of the greatest artists of them all Rick Griffin.

This example is really fresh and pristine with no pinholes nicks cuts tears or restoration of any kind. The only flaws we can find is 1/8 inch corner bump in the upper left corner and a few random flecks of toning on the back. This is just the third CGC graded Mint Condition example to ever appear at public auction. A signed 9.4 example brought $717 on 11/8/16 and a 9.6 example brought $833 on 4/30/15. A great collectible at a very reasonable price level!
