A friend of my father's passed away a few years ago and his kids recently got things together enough for an estate sale. He worked for the newspaper for most if his career and performed magic on the side. So whenever a comic strip ran that featured magic or a magician, he'd contact the artist to try to get the original art. And since he was seeing the work before almost anyone else (by virtue of working at the newspaper) he amassed a good collection of originals.
My father, also a magician and something of a comics enthusiast, went to the auction to try to get some of the pieces that had been personalized to his friend. There was evidently another person there who was bidding on almost everything with a money is no object attitude but Dad did manage to walk away with a few pieces, which I thought I'd share. Probably of most interest to many people would be the 1968 Boner's Ark strip from Mort Walker (signed "Addison") on the far right but the others, all dating from the '50s and '60s, look interesting as well.
