Description

    Gill Fox - Feature Comics #60 Cover Original Art (Quality, 1942). The original miniscule superhero, Doll Man, makes good use of a pocket knife, rendering this gas-mask-wearing Kraut helpless. Patriotism was the order of the day, and Gill Fox, who was also the editor of Feature Comics at the time, offers up an action-packed image that virtually commands the kids of the era to snatch this issue off the stands. Feature also featured a bevy of other characters, and the head-shots highlighting this diverse cast are all original art, with the only exception (Lala Palooza) being a stat that has gone missing. The Feature logo has browned noticeably, but is still intact, and the art is in Very Good condition overall, with some blunting at the corners, a fair amount of white-out and general aging; the image area measures 8.5" x 12". This amazing cover has never been offered for public sale before, having been kept in the files of artist Gill Fox since its publication. Given that, and considering the general scarcity of Golden Age superhero covers in general, this is an opportunity you cannot afford to ignore. From the collection of Gill Fox.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
