    Description

    Alex Schomburg - Original Cover Art for Green Hornet #21 (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 massive Golden Age art board measures 15" x 20", with an image area of 12.5" x 18". The outer borders show some wear, with light soiling and damage to the lower corners, but the art area remains clean and problem free. WWII-era cover art like this doesn't come along too often, so get those funds ready -- you're going to want this one!
