This overlay served as the color guide for the printer. Comic book art of this era was similarly produced by artists in black and white and printed in full color. This artwork originates from the estate Charles Steinbacher, the art director of Gum Inc., and was saved until recent years by his family. The glassine overlay has some creasing.
