Jack Sparling - Original Cover Art for The Six Million Dollar Man #5 (Charlton, 1976). This dynamic watercolor illustration by Jack Sparling sparkles with the kind of slam bang action that made the original television series so exciting. Steve Austin slugs it out with a gang of motorcycle marauders, armed with only one portion of his bionic, six million dollar reconstruction - his fists. Although this artwork is labeled as the cover of The Six Million Dollar Man #5, the printed version varies in many ways, which leads us to believe this was the original cover, and the printed version was based on this art. The most notable difference is that the printed version maintains an ink line, and the cover color does not have the hand-painted look, which Sparling spent such time on. Sparling is given credit as the cover artist for this issue, so it seems he may have been requested to redo the art. It measures an overall 11.5" x 16" with a 10" x 15" image area. In excellent condition. Signed by Jack Sparling.
