Handmade collage comic strip circa 1957, signed “Jim,” on an off-white 12 x 3.75 sheet. Comic features clipped cartoon characters affixed to the sheet, with speech bubbles written by Morrison beside each one. From left to right, the words read: “By Jove…By Jove men, look at that dog…Sniff Sniff…Piss on comic books…Potrezbie?…How the hell should we know…What the Hell am I doing in this furshluginner comic strip?” Nicely float-mounted and framed in a shadowbox to an overall size of 17.5 x 9. In fine condition. Provenance: Christie’s 1994, 2012. A one-of-a-kind piece of artwork that offers a unique perspective on Morrison’s thoughts and creativity as a young man.
