Description

    Gill Fox - Torchy #3 Cover Original Art (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, making this a rare opportunity to acquire a classic and sexy piece of original art. The image area measures 13.5" x 19", and includes all the original logo and masthead photostats. Aside from slight aging apparent, the art is in Excellent condition.
