This is a superb stand-alone piece to frame and display. This showpiece features tremendous dynamic imagery. PLUS, ORIGINAL COMIC ART IS WAY LARGER THAN A MERE COMIC! Great detail work, with quality renditions of the characters, and the tightness of the ink work is impressive! The originals to popular comics and children’s books are notoriously tough to get, and once one sells, it can be out of the market for decades. Any comic-art fan will want to see our other current offerings, featuring dozens of pieces, including vintage cover production art. THIS ARTWORK IS SUPPLE AND CLEAN AND WELL PRESERVED, PLEASE SEE THE INCLUDED PICTURES. This original piece of comic illustration art would be a great addition to the collection of any fan of the unique original artwork to popular comics. This is the ORIGINAL COMIC ART, which is far bigger in size than a comic book or a magazine; And most of it is image-area, so you can imagine that every individual figure is substantial. A conversation piece of the highest order, you’ll want to have this one framed and displayed prominently. In one photograph I show the art alongside a random comic for scale, although NO COMICS ARE INCLUDED, only shown for size reference. The digital pictures make the piece appear dull and drab, when in reality it is especially striking in person. This actual one-off item was created in 1955 for Whitman Publishing Company to produce the iconic front cover of a coloring book. This gorgeous showpiece is quite well preserved. There is one crease, to the top left corner, (far outside the image area). Most of the logo is hand inked, but the words “Lone Ranger” are not original. The original illustration of the characters is cut and pasted onto the background, while the logo is on the background board, — it is especially striking since the inking was done to high standards, so it really emphasizes the high-impact images. This is one-of-a-kind material which would be a great acquisition for any fan of the old comics, books, movies, cartoons, radio programs, TPB’s & graphic novels and magazines! Extra fresh, bright, and clean; It has obviously been well-preserved so far. Boasting lots of great details, this would be particularly impressive if it were framed and displayed, but it could also be stored for investment.
