Description

    Jack Sparling - Unexpected #107 Alternate Cover Original Art (DC, 1968). Johnny Peril is on the run -- for him, every moment was a living nightmare -- as he was lashed by the whip of fear. This striking scene was drawn on DC cover stock and portrays the same basic situation as the printed cover, but it is an entirely different, unpublished cover drawing. The published version relied on "color holds" to create the image of the giant head in the background, and the figure of Johnny Peril was more heavily shadowed. However, as a work of black and white art, this unprinted version is much more dramatic. This cover has an image area that measures 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition.
