    Description

    G.I. Joe and Others Painted Background Color Key Paintings Group of 12 (Marvel, c. 1983-87). Here's a real treasure trove of original hand-painted artwork from both the animated series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and the animated follow-up feature G.I. Joe: The Movie. These are background Color Key paintings of various laboratories filled with futuristic equipment, exterior armored buildings, and one interior marked "Bangkok Inn." There are also exterior images, ranging from the mundane (a pan image of a city street with multiple "NO" signs; this one is actually from Muppet Babies) to exotic (inside an Egyptian tomb, from the episode "The Gods Below," and an Old Scottish Manor) plus a couple of lovely scenic vistas, including a waterfall and a tropical beach. Art is painted in gouache with airbrush highlights on illustration board; image sizes range from 9" x 6.75" to 16" x 7.5". Condition ranges from Good to Very Good, with corner and edge wear, and handling in outer borders; most are Very Good. A fantastic, fun lot with some beautifully detailed paintings!
