    Dick Giordano - Original Cover Art for Jonni Thunder #4 (DC, 1985). In an attempt to update a classic character, Roy and Dann Thomas, aided and abetted by artist Dick Giordano, turned Johnny Thunder, a dopey guy with a crew cut, a bow tie, and a magic thunderbolt into Jonni Thunder, a cute blonde PI with white suits, a pet white rabbit (Shamus), and the ability to transform into a living lightning bolt. Whether the attempt was a success is arguable, but what is clear is that this is a fantastic piece of art. Dramatically rendered by Giordano, this piece has the figure of the lightning bolt as a color hold on an acetate overlay, and also comes with the original art for the overlay on a piece of vellum. Measuring approximately 11.25" x 17" overall and in excellent condition, this is a fabulous reminder of comic's glory days in the 1980s.
