    C. C. Beck Fairy Tale Parade #3 Cover Recreation Original Art (1977). Walt Kelly did some of his best artistic work for Dell's Fairy Tale Parade comic book in the early to mid-1940s. In fact, he left his job at the Disney studios specifically to take on this assignment, and he obviously poured plenty of love into his work. Famed Captain Marvel artist C. C. Beck is a kindred soul, and the ideal choice to recreate Kelly's lovely cover to Fairy Tale Parade #3, which was originally published in 1942. His version of the cover is in ink and gouache on illustration board, with an approximate image area of 11" x 15", and is matted to an overall 16.5" x 20.5". Excellent condition. Signed and dated on the reverse side.
