    Mike Grell Jon Sable Freelance #24 Cover and Complete 22-Page Story Original Art (First, 1983). Shot directly from Grell's pencils except for the cover! The original art is beautiful, and it's difficult to do the pencil art justice with our catalog images. Not only is this lot the rare opportunity to acquire a complete book, the story is one of the more action-packed and memorable ones of the run -- "The Contract, Part Three." The cover is signed and inscribed by the artist. The cover is ink over graphite on Bristol. Taped edges and some handling wear at the corners. The cover is in Very Good condition with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The interior pages are graphite on vellum with some Zipatone highlights. Each page has an image area of 10" x 15". As you'd expect for pencil art, there is smudging in the borders. Glue stains on the word balloons and the photostatted cityscapes. In Excellent condition.
