    Barry Windsor-Smith Bloodshot #1 Cover and Preliminary Artwork Original Art Group of 2 (Valiant, 1993). This first issue cover is remarkable for several reasons. One is the artist's incredible rendering of the hero, and also this is the very first chromium cover produced by BWS and Valiant comics. The art was embossed and printed on chromium card stock and affixed to the cover of every issue. The image is crafted in pen and ink over graphite and blue pencil on bright white 11" x 17" Bristol board. His chest emblem is hand-colored by BWS in bright red acrylic. There is very light handling around the edges; however, the image area is in Excellent condition. As a huge bonus, this piece comes with the artist's preliminary artwork on yellow lined paper, also in Excellent condition. Both signed BWS.
