    Al Avison - Original Cover Art for Green Hornet Comics #40 (Harvey, 1949). Two crooks are in for a big surprise, when they step out of a window, while the Green Hornet and Kato lay in wait. Al Avison is the administrator of this good guy vs. bad guy scenario, and it's a doozy! With a style that is a cross between satire and serious, Avison is able to capture the look and feel of this imprudent moment with flair. The overall art size is a humongous 14.75" x 21.5" on an overall 15.25" x 21.5 piece of illustration board. The art is very clean and well-kept, with some slight aging apparent, especially along the right edge. The logo and indicia at the top are originals, and show some slight aging. There is a bit of white-out usage along the right edge, also, yet the work still resonates.
