    Artcraft Staff Artist - Action Jackson Coloring Book Cover Original Art (Artcraft, 1973). Action Jackson was one of the last gasps of the Mego line of action figures, after they had lost the license to the world's greatest superheroes (Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Aquaman, etc.) with which they had made their name in the late '60s/early '70s. AJ was a minor hit for the company, even expanding into ancillary merchandise such as coloring books. Offered here is the vibrant cover art to a 1973 Action Jackson coloring book, as AJ rescues a stranded mountaineer with his strap-on helicopter pack. We have not been able to track down the artist behind this piece, but it is colorful and eye-catching, and would make a great addition to any Action Jackson collection. The artwork measures 12.25" x 16", with an image area of 8.75" x 11.5", which is almost exactly the size it was printed in the final book. The artwork is in Excellent condition, with some blunting at the corners and tape stains/damage across the top edge. Also included in this lot is a copy of the printed coloring book, very clean with no colored-in pages.
