    Description

    Basil Wolverton Plop! #1 Cover Original Art (DC, 1973). "Arms" Armstrong was the cover featured "weirdo" for the very first issue of DC's all-humor comic that was MADly reaching for that jugular vein. The humor anthology was a collection of short stories, panel gags, and other assorted goofy junk. This cover art was created by Wolverton using his incredible pointillism and crosshatching skills in ink over graphite on 12.5" x 18.5" Bristol board, and it nearly fills the entire board! This image was also used on the back cover. It is signed in the lower section. The piece is toned and in Very Good condition.
