Lately, I’ve been collecting originals for newspaper comics and editorial cartoons. It’s a relatively expensive thing that only die-hard comic fans do (although some originals I've recieved as gifts from cartoonists) but all in all, it’s pretty worth it. What makes this cool is that while there are probably millions of copies of one comic strip (through newspapers and book collections), there’s only one original artwork in existance. Once you have it, nobody else can’t.
Most of my originals are in Japan, preparing to be shipped to my home here in Tennessee in March, but from top of my head, I have the following:
Chuck Asay - 1 editorial cartoons
Henry Payne - 1 editorial cartoon
At the Zu by Ron Ruelle - 1 daily, 1 Sunday
The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee by John Hambrock- 1 Sunday
Dog eat Doug by Brian Anderson - 1 daily
Dooley's World by Roger Bradfield - 2 dailies
Heaven's Love Thrift Shop by Kevin Frank - 1 Sunday
Prickly City by Scott Stantis - 1 Sunday
Retail by Norm Feuti - 1 Sunday
Sheldon (webcomic) by Dave Kellett - 1 daily
I’m not including autographs and sketches I’ve recieved from cartoonists, BTW. There’s too many to list for those.
If you have any originals, feel free to write about them in the comments section.
