Description

    Charles Biro Boy Comics #102 Crimebuster Cover Original Art (Lev Gleason, 1954). Charles Biro was one of the greatest talents of the Golden Age, but examples of his art rarely come to market -- this is only the second example Heritage has offered to date. Comics journalist Joe Brancatelli once commented, "If Jack Kirby was the most important artistic force in comics during the 1940s, Biro certainly proved to be the finest editor and writer. While others were providing escapist fantasy in their comic books, Charles Biro decided his books would be different... Biro proved to be the most innovative and certainly most advanced writer in the comic book field." This dramatic Crimebuster cover illustration for "The Boy with the Rabbit Teeth" has an image area of 14" x 12.5". The piece is missing its title logo and other type elements, and the Biro signature was a paste-on which has slipped off the page at the lower left, and gone missing: otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.
