    C. C. Beck Captain Marvel Adventures #2 Cover Original Art (Fawcett, 1941). Captain Marvel burst onto the comic scene in 1940 like the proverbial bolt of lightning, and this may be the earliest original cover art featuring this character that will ever surface. C. C. Beck has always been considered the consummate artist for Captain Marvel. His clean style was perfect for a hero that was almost like a big soft teddy bear who was, nevertheless, an intimidating force against evil. Captain Marvel Adventures #2 was first advertised as #3 when Fawcett originally considered Special Edition Comics the real #1. Thus, this cover art has the issue #3 on it. This piece has an image area of 11" x 16". The face of Captain Marvel is a pasted-up piece of original art drawn by C. C. Beck. There is moderate use of corrective white-out and very light staining around the text stats; otherwise, this historic piece is in Excellent condition.
