    Alex Schomburg Marvel Mystery Comics #66 Cover Recreation (1982). Alex Schomburg's wartime covers for Timely were always a pure visual treat, each one packed with amazing detail. The best always featured some type of impossible torture/death device which was on the verge of doing in some trussed-up victim, when the Human Torch, Sub-Mariner, or Captain America crashed in to save the day. Probably the most spectacular of these covers was the very last WWII-themed cover to Marvel Mystery Comics #66, dated September, 1945, which featuring a fantastic Japanese Death Ray about to blast New York City to smithereens. As great as that original cover was, Schomburg topped himself when he painstakingly recreated the cover years later, as an oversized, fully rendered mixed-media painting. This masterpiece was created in 1982 and published as one of three lithographs commemorating the original classic paintings. This is one item that must be seen in person to be fully appreciated, but even in reproduction on the printed catalog page, you must admit it looks stunning in every way. The image area is approximately 18" x 22", has been signed by the artist in the left floor boards, and the piece has been professionally matted and framed to an overall size of 25.5" x 29.5". It's in Excellent condition, waiting to be displayed with pride on the wall of one very lucky Timely fan!
