DescriptionAl Avison - Original Cover Art for Joe Palooka #114 (Harvey, 1950s). Ruffy Balonki calls himself the "World's Greatest Fighter," and he does manage to take a powerhouse punch from Palooka with a smile on his ugly mug. But we think it's a pretty safe bet that Joe will triumph in the end. This outstanding cover is by Harvey art hound Al Avison, doing his best to mock the style of JP creator Ham Fisher. The art is exceptionally clean, with white-out limited mainly to Palooka's pants and the base of the sign. The logo area is a recent replacement, and the entire image has been mounted on a new piece of illustration board, giving it all a slick, ready-for-framing appearance. Hey, sixty million readers can't be wrong! 11.5" x 17".
