    Description

    Jack Kirby - Speed Comics #23 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1942). This spectacular World War II era Jack Kirby cover was Harvey's response to the other star-spangled superheroes bursting onto the comic book scene, flag-wavers such as Captain America, the Shield, and Captain Flag. Patriotic fervor was all the newsstand rage, and Kirby was the master of this pulse-pounding genre. There are moderate white-out touch-ups on the cover that do little to detract from the impact of the image. The image size is 10.5" x 14.25". The logo, "film strip" hero portraits, and caption box are photocopied replacements; otherwise, this piece is in Very Good condition. This is as fine a Golden Age cover example as is likely to be offered, so be a good American and bid!
