    Edgar Church The Messenger: Denver Life Member News Magazine Cover Original Art (1963). Church's meticulous touch shows vividly in this frontier scene for a club of prominent businessmen in Denver, the artist's hometown. A bonus piece (attached to reverse) is a copy of Church's business card. The comics-style aspect derives from Church's lifelong passion for the comics: He was one of the first big-time collectors, assembling the legendary Mile High stash as a source of reference and enjoyment -- back when a first-generation funnybook still cost only 10 cents at the newsstand. Ink, Zipatone shading, and white watercolor on Bristol board. Image area, 9" x 12.5". Faint scuffing in white-painted areas. Excellent condition.
