DescriptionC. C. Beck and Pete Constanza - Original Cover Art for Whiz Comics #17 (Fawcett, 1941). Captain Marvel, the red-clad hero affectionately known as the Big Red Cheese, was Fawcett Publication's answer to Superman. First introduced in the pages of Whiz Comics, in February of 1940, Captain Marvel soon graduated to his own title. This cover, from Whiz Comics #17, was penciled by C.C. Beck and inked by Pete Constanza on illustration board. An iconic image of the World's Mightiest Mortal smacking an enemy tank, by the two artists most closely linked to the character. The overall art size is 15" x 20" with a 11" x 16" image area. This unique comic treasure is in absolutely incredible condition, with very little signs of aging, mostly along the extreme outer edges of the art. Includes the original logo and indicia paste-ups.
