    Howard Chaykin American Flagg! #1 Cover Original Art (First, 1983). One of the most impactful comic book covers of the 1980s! The series was unlike anything seen in comics before, and even those who thought they knew Chaykin's art saw it go in an incredible new direction. And surely this cover is one of the most desirable pieces of art from the 1980s independents that exists. Our online listing includes an additional image of the art without its overlay, showing that the original art elements are the Reuben Flagg figure, the parts of the two circles at bottom, and the two horizontal lines; the logo and decorative elements are on printed acetate overlay. The art is signed. Marker over graphite on Duotone board with an image area of 10.5" x 14.75". In some areas the marker has begun to fade, though very slightly. Very Good condition.
