Cap Stubbs, Tippy ORIGINAL COMIC ART Edwina 'OK Now'!

Cap Stubbs, Tippy ORIGINAL COMIC ART Edwina 'OK Now'! - eBay (item 310089353384 end time Oct-08-08 18:37:54 PDT)

This Cap Stubbs & Tippy comic strip original by Edwina Dumm was published in newspapers in the late 1950s. It's one long strip that wouldn't fit in the scanner. The title is "Everything's OK Now." It shows Grandma, Cap Stubbs, a neighbor girl and the dog Tippy.

The last panel has the hand-printed date "10-27," but the top margin shows a date of "Tue Nov 2." She crossed out "Fri--Oct 23" in the top margin. Edwina often changed her mind about the sequence of strips while working out her story, thus the multiple dates. Note the numerous push pin holes where she tacked it to her drawing board while creating the art.

The sticker in the second to last panel says, "The George Matthew Adams Service, Inc." which was the name of her syndicate. She signed this strip under the balloon in the last panel.
