Gahan Wilson's Frog Prince

What bride hasn't asked this question? This original color artwork by Gahan Wilson bears stamps indicating it was published in 1974, apparently on October 13, and almost certainly in "the Spirit section"of the Sunday paper distributed by the Des Moines Register and Tribune Syndicate.

Gahan Wilson, "Now are you going to turn into a Prince Charming?"
The Register and Tribune Syndicate, October 13, 1974
