    Jack Kirby and Joe Simon - Star-Spangled Comics #8 Cover Original Art (DC, 1942). The Newsboy Legion and the Guardian, in their second appearance, are featured on this fantastic Joe Simon and Jack Kirby cover illustration. The Newsboys were one of S&K's great "Dead End"-style kid gangs; teamed with policeman-turned masked hero, the Guardian, they inhabited over fifty issues of this long-running title. This cover may make you a little dizzy; it's a wild perspective view of the gang straddling two tall buildings, making a human bridge for the Guardian as he battles two gun-wielding bad guys. The shot of the Guardian, sailing through the air, is Jack Kirby at his Golden Age best. Illustrated on a sheet of 16" x 21" illustration board, the art has an image area of 12.5" x 17", and been professionally restored, leaving it in Excellent condition. The logo and titles are recent photocopy replacements. It's a very beautiful piece, one that is sure to be the highlight of some lucky bidder's collection!
