DescriptionAlex Schomburg Speed Comics #33 Original Cover Art (Harvey, 1944). The collectibilty of many Golden Age comics can be traced directly to the man who drew their covers: Alex Schomburg. He is unquestionably the finest cover illustrator to work in the industry during the 1940s. This outstanding Speed Comics cover fairly boils with kinetic action as Captain Freedom, Shock Gibson, and the Black Cat triumph over heavily-armed Axis thugs. The portrayal of the enemy may not exactly be politically correct, but the mastery of the artist is not in question. The artwork is so complex and rich that every examination rewards the viewer with a host of subtle nuances. Covers of this quality and vintage rarely leave the collections in which they are safely nestled, and the work of Alex Schomburg is even less likely to come to public auction, making this an opportunity not to be ignored. This wonderful piece of artwork is sure to be the gem of any collection. It was produced in ink on illustration board that measures approximately 16.5" x 22.25". The image area measures 13.75" x 20.25". The title mast area and text circle are recent replacements. In Excellent condition.
