DescriptionBasil Wolverton Joker "Bob Hope" Illustration Original Art (Humorama, c. 1950). A wild portrait of comedian Bob Hope, as only Basil Wolverton could do it! The art is stamped on back "Timely Features, Inc.", "Joker", and "Humorama, Inc.", and a hand-written "Gazette", plus a notation that it was to be run 2" across; this illustration was probably reused by publisher Martin Goodman several times, in different publications. This "cover", enhanced with photostats on board with the Wolverton original carefully attached from the back, is a fantasy piece (no actual published cover like this existed), but it will display very nicely! The original ink and airbrush art measures approximately 11" x 14", with the combined board size 17" x 22". In Excellent condition.
