    Description

    Al Avison - Original Cover Art for Harvey Hits #15 (Harvey, 1958). Al Avison was one of the most prolific artists to work at Harvey during the 1940s and '50s. He was very adept at mimicking other popular artists' styles so as to maintain a continuity on characters, such as the Phantom, that the fans were familiar with. Still, Avison art possesses a unique quality that was superior in its own right. This is a great example of his controlled skill with the pen and ink medium. Avison figures move with seemingly effortless ease across exotic backgrounds. Because of Harvey's practice of reusing production stats for subsequent issues, Heritage Comics had a few of the smaller missing stats professionally restored in order to present this work of art in a fashion that is as close to the original intent of the artist as possible. This piece measures approximately 12.25 x 17.5" with an image area of 9.75" x 14.25" and is in nice condition with a moderate amount of white out.
