Description

    Al Avison - Joe Palooka #94 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1956). A rare fully painted Joe Palooka cover finds JP smashing through a door to find the UN official held captive by a spy ring. Harvey workhorse Al Avison must have had fun digging out his acrylics for this colorful piece, and the artwork crackles with action. The piece measures 15" x 20" on thick illustration board, with an image area of 12" x 17". There are glue stains in the margins from a matte that is no longer attached, but otherwise the condition is Excellent, and the painting retains great color and vibrancy. Also included in this lot is a copy of the printed comic book. Fully painted covers from this era are fairly rare, so don't miss your chance to add this piece to your portfolio!
