    Description

    Bill Ward Gee-Whiz! #15 Back Cover Original Art (Humorama, 1958). Bill Ward really out-did himself with the detail on this fantastic single panel gag cartoon. Just check out the white paint detail and highlights on her hat and dress! It was so good, that Marvel's "Men's humor" imprint used it as the back cover joke for this issue, and in fact, it was reprinted as an inside page in Romp (August 1960), and again in Zip (May 1968). Crafted in Charcoal and ink with white paint on 16.5" x 22.5" brown paper. There are minor rips in the edges and tape residue on the edges as well. It comes with, but is not attached to, the original Bristol board it had been taped to for production purposes. This board indicates it was used as a back cover for Gee-Whiz!. Overall in Very Good condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
