    Al Avison - Original Cover Art for Joe Palooka's Battle Adventures #68 (Harvey, 1953). Here's one to get you chomping at the bit. This is the cover for the first issue titled Joe Palooka's Battle Adventures. Astonishingly enough, this title is listed in The Overstreet Price Guide as being a "Joe vs. 'Gooks'" cover. Joe really is doing his part in exterminating the "yellow menace" on this one. With broken rifle stock in hand, he charges in bare-knuckled to do some serious tail kicking. This historical piece has a replacement logo stat and the knife in the commie's hand is a replacement. This piece has minimal white-out and a light stain on the commie's arm. This one will take up quite a bit of space on your wall as it measures 15" x 20.5". As a patriotic American, you will be nothing less than proud of this cover.
