    Jack Davis Sick #16 Frankenstein Monster and Ben Casey Cover Original Art (Crestwood Publications, 1962). "Is TV running out of sick people? Will TV doctors build patients? Read 'Ben Casey -- The Naked and the Dead.'" A show-stopper for any Jack Davis fan-addict, this cover for Sick Magazine's 16th issue features TV's Dr. Ben Casey bringing the Frankenstein Monster to life -- wild and wacky stuff. Also spotlighted is Sick's early mascot, the Little Physician, the round-faced little guy with glasses and goatee, dressed in his usual scrubs. As usual, Davis delivers the goods with a classic take on our favorite movie monster. It's interesting to note that after this issue, the Little Physician was replaced by the better remembered, derby-wearing Huckleberry Fink. Much of Davis' detailed background seen here was whited-out for the published cover. This mixed media painting on illustration board has an image area of approximately 13" x 17.5". Aside from some glue staining at the top (mostly noticeable in the margins), it's in Very Good condition. Signed at the lower left. From the Joe Simon Estate.
