    Description

    Adam Hughes Betty & Veronica #1 Cover Original Art and Preliminary Art Group of 3 (Archie Comics, 2016). When it comes to drawing beautiful women in comics, Hughes ranks near the top, perhaps even at the top. His composition here stands out in terms of lifelike aggression -- as if the underlying antagonisms had been there all along, but it took Hughes to bring them to the surface. This cover was the "main" edition of the issue and was also used for the Free Comic Book day edition. Ink and earth-tone watercolors over graphite on watercolor stock, with a shimmering white-watercolor background. Also included are two prelim pieces, one featuring the flaming background, and another of Betty's T-shirt. Accompanied by a fully colored print, near actual size. The image area is 15" x 18". Excellent condition.
