DescriptionJack Sparling - Unearthly Spectaculars #1 Cover Unpublished Version Original Art (Harvey, 1965). Jack Sparling unleashed this lunging strike by the feral Tiger Boy at two State Police officers for the cover of Unearthly Spectaculars #1. Startling as it is, perhaps editor Joe Simon felt that it just wasn't quite unearthly enough! As a result, he photostatted the art and used only portions of Jack Sparling's design to create a highly modified version for the final publication. Note that the creatures found in the left of Jack Sparling's original design were converted from shaggy "moss-men," to less humanoid, more gnarly "tree-creatures" for the final design. The image size of Tiger Man and the State Policemen in Sparling's original version are much larger in the cover's composition. The art is in Excellent condition, with only a minor amount of white-out used. The overall paper size is 13.75" x 18.25", with an image area of 12" x 17". A replacement logo has been added to complete the Unearthly Spectaculars #1 cover image. Although this image was not used for the final cover, it remains a very handsome, ultra-dramatic depiction of Harvey Comics' Tiger Boy in action.
