DescriptionGill Fox - Original Cover Art to Torchy #3 (Quality, 1950). Gill Fox did five Torchy covers, and every single one of them is a gem, so it is with great pride that we offer the extremely alluring cover artwork to issue #3, as Torchy inadvertently sends a couple down the road to divorce even as they depart for their honeymoon. Who could blame the hapless bridegroom for being dumbstruck by one of the sexiest women ever to grace a comic book cover? Not us! Beyond the amusing gag portrayed here, the actual rendering is absolutely stunning, with the intricate details of Torchy's dress, and the sultry pout of her mouth expertly fashioned by Fox, one of the top "good girl" artists ever to put pen to paper. Needless to say, Torchy covers are extremely rare; only one other is definitely known to exist, and to our knowledge, none have ever been offered at public auction, making this a rare opportunity to acquire a classic and sexy piece of original art. Cover is in exceptional condition, retaining all the original stats, with the only white-out being in the "Just Married" sign on the trunk of the car. 15" x 19" on thick illustration board.

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.View More Testimonials
