Description

    Al Williamson - Original Art Cover to Valor Comics #2 (EC1955). EC master artist Al Williamson renders an awesome Gladiator cover to EC's New Direction comic Valor #2. Note the incredible detail Williamson put into the apparently victorious gladiator's shield and belt. Also notice the ornate Eagle behind Cesar and the lion heads on the columns. EC artwork is prized and this piece will be a treasured addition to any collection. The Valor logo stat has some discoloration due to the deterioration of the glue, while the stat of the knight and New Direction logo is crisp and white. The page has some light overall yellowing. As an added bonus, there are some preliminary Williamson pencils and inks on the back side Including a nice portrait of a hero and the hero and a girl looking into a cave. The cover art measures approximately 13.5 inches by 19.5 inches.
