<B>Norman Pett - Hand Colored Jane Daily Comic Strip Original Art (undated).</B></I> <I>Jane</B></I> was an English strip that ran from 1932-59, mainly in England. It was syndicated in the USA for a short period after World War II, circa 1945-46. The feature was often rather risque, but it was toned down for its American audience. Jane debuted in 1932, when <I>Jane's Journal, the Diary of a Bright Young Thing</B></I> was published in London's " "<B>Daily Mirror</B></I>. When the war broke out, Jane (said to be modeled after Pett's wife), was pictured wearing less and less of her clothes, thus boosting the morale of the fighting men abroad. In 1948, Pett devoted himself to a new feature, <I>Susie</B></I>, which appeared in the " "<B>Sunday Dispatch</B></I>. Finally, in 1959, Jane's adventures (now continued by Pett's former assistant) ended after she married her long time boyfriend. The image area of this handsome daily measures 5.5"" x 15"", and aside from paper ""pulls"" around the borders, outside the image area, the art is in Excellent condition. <BR><BR><B>Important notice:</B> Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 200-250 lots per hour. On some occasions eBay Live bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject an eBay Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the eBay live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via eBay Live, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since eBay bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the eBay bid is pr
