    Alex Schomburg - Captain America, Bucky, and Sub-Mariner Original Art Painting (1986). Golden Age comics with Alex Schomburg covers are highly collectible and prized-possessions of lucky fans. Schomburg was recruited by Timely Comics editor Joe Simon in 1940. Simon, and Timely publisher Martin Goodman wanted their books to stand out on the newsstands, and felt that covers stuffed with action would do so. They were right. Schomburg was a well-known pulp artist already, so he was a perfect choice for the job. Bold colors, meticulous detail, and slam-bang action made for great and often iconic covers.
    Sadly, precious little of that Golden Age Timely art has survived, and even fewer covers. When Schomburg was re-discovered in the 1980s, he was asked to recreate some of his classic covers. To many fans' delight, he could still work with the skill and talent that had already made him a comic book and sci-fi art legend!
    This small number of his re-creations were auctioned off. They are highly prized by fans, and rarely come back to the market.
    On this original piece, Captain America and Bucky are charging through the Japanese forces as a gigantic Prince Namor derails this Axis power's plans! An exciting image in bold and vivid colors crafted edge-to-edge in gouache on 18" x 22" board. Signed in the lower left. There is minor edge/corner wear. Glass front framed to 22.75" x 26.75". In Excellent condition.
