Description

    George Baker Sad Sack's Army Life Parade #54 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1974). There was obviously a Snafu... not a surprise with Sad Sack around. However we are not talking about him giving the Sarge the gas, but instead that this piece of art is clearly labeled to have been the cover for issue #53 instead! Since issue #53 was indeed the October issue, it's likely just a numbering slip at the time of creation. The fact that it is dated 11-29-72 shows that George Baker was working well ahead of pace. He passed away a mere seven months after this cover was printed. Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 12.5". Slight tanning, with a bottom corner trim, otherwise in Excellent condition.
