Description

    Charles Biro Daredevil Comics #74 Little Wise Guys Hand Colored Cover Original Art (lev Gleason, 1951). Charles Biro was one of the greatest talents of the Golden Age, but examples of his art rarely come to market -- this slam-bang cover is only the fourth 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 Daredevil cover illustration featuring the Little Wise Guys has an image area of 14" x 13". The piece is missing its title logo and other type elements, otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. A copy of the comic book is included.
