    Al Avison (attributed) - Harvey Hits Magazine #1 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1957). The Ghost Who Walks saves a hapless hunter from almost certain doom in this exciting cover. The original costumed superhero, the Phantom, was a major headliner for Harvey, and was a natural choice to grace the cover of this important first issue. There is some light soiling along the edges, and some editorial notations in the margins, none of which detract from the central image. The logo and masthead is recent photocopy replacement art, but all else is original. It should be noted that the image of the Phantom's dog, Devil, is a paste-over, but is fully original. There is minimal use of white-out and blue-pencil, making this both an attractive and historic cover. This cover has an approximate image area of 11.25" x 16.5," and is in Very Good condition. Don't let this one pass you by!
