    Spy Smasher Serial Three Sheet Poster (Republic, 1942). Republic's twenty-fifth serial was a fast-paced, well-plotted chapter play based on the Fawcett Comics WWII character. Many serial fans have sited Spy Smasher as one of the best ever, particularly the exciting and unique cliffhangers that ended each chapter. This eye-popping three sheet poster measures approximately 41" x 80", framed to an overall 42.5" x 83", in overall Fine restored condition, with several small areas of color touch. It is one of the toughest serial posters to find with only a handful of known copies still in existence; this is the very poster featured in the book Capes, Crooks and Cliffhangers: Heroic Serials of the Golden Age. Hake's Pop Culture Memorabilia Price Guide notes it as "rare", and assigns it a FN value of $6,500. From The Art of the Funnies Collection.
