Description

    Chris Ware Acme Novelty Library #6 Back Cover Illustration Original Art (Fantagraphics, 1995). A wonderful send-up of an ad that used to run on the back covers of comic books in the 1960s enticing readers to sell Christmas Cards. At a glance you might not even notice what it is really pushing. Chris Ware's meticulous draftsmanship is put to fantastic use on this highly detailed and authentic-looking back cover ad (if you want to see an example of the original Wallace Brown Inc. ad that's being parodied, see our online listing for the Journey into Mystery #83 we're offering in this auction). This piece of art is created in ink over blue pencil on bright white Illustration board with an image area of 10.5" x 12.5". All text is typeset stat paste-up. The original art is in the top banner, the boxes on the left, and the Christmas cards at the bottom. In Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
