Description

    Alex Schomburg - Green Hornet #21 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1944). America's favorite World War II cover artist does it again with this magnificent action-packed illustration. The Green Hornet and his sidekick Kato stop the Japanese saboteurs, against the backdrop of a busy naval port with more going on in this one cover than many titles could produce in a year's time! Schomburg's use of white-out is particularly impressive here, creating highlights as the guns blast away, and speed lines as one gunman topples down the hatch. This large Golden Age art board measures 15" x 20", with an image area of 12.5" x 18". The outer borders show some wear, with minor soiling and some damage to the lower corners, but the art area remains in Very Good condition, clean and problem free. The original masthead, including the Green Hornet logo and all type blurbs, is missing and has been replaced by a carefully-created replica on matching paper. WWII-era cover art like this doesn't come along too often, so stockpile those funds -- you're going to want this one!
