Description

    Charles Sultan Punch Comics #2 Mr. E Cover Original Art (Chesler, 1942). Apparently, due to the low page rate at the Eisner shop, both Charles Sultan and George Tuska jumped ship to Harry "A" Chesler's shop. Not only is the influence of top Eisner shop artist Lou Fine quite obvious in this whimsical Sultan cover, so is that of one of Fine's own influences, that of pulp artist Edd Cartier, who often drew gnomes such as these. The superb brushwork on the "wet drapery" look of our hero, Mr. E., shouts "Golden Age." A large art correction that listed the features of this issue has slipped off the page, only to reveal more original art of gnomes. The title logo and other type elements are missing from the cover; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. The overall size is 13.75" x 20".

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
