    Description

    Ideal #2 "The Corpses of Dr. Sacotti" Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1948). A genuine rarity, from a short-lived series that wavered in only five issues from literary/historical adaptations to thrillers to true-romance stories. This uniquely horrific piece foreshadows the Timely/Atlas/Marvel outpouring of horror titles of the 1950s. The story thus introduced reflects an influence of Scotland Yard's Jack-the-Ripper case of the 19th century, with a nod to a popular movie of the 1930s, The Mystery of Mr. X. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 13.5" x 20". Moderate toning, marginal scuffing, and adhesive staining. Very Good condition.
