Description

    Jim Lee and Carl Potts The Punisher War Journal #10 Sniper Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1989). If you are in dire need of an explosive cover that captures the all-out action appeal of the Punisher series, look no further than this Marvel masterpiece, penciled the mega-popular Lee. In this issue, Punisher and Microchip use a tank to chase down the Sniper, who's making off with an Apache helicopter. Launching his ascent into the comic pantheon of creators as an artist for Marvel, Lee built his immense following working on titles such as Alpha Flight and Punisher War Journal, before soaring to stardom on X-Men #1. Eighteen months before work began on the PWJ title, Lee showed Marvel editor Carl Potts his portfolio, and he assigned Lee an issue of Alpha Flight to pencil. Potts was impressed by the quality of the work and with Lee's professionalism -- soon Lee became the regular artist on the series. A little over a year later, Potts mentioned to Lee that he was looking for someone to do finished art over his layouts. To his very pleasant surprise, Lee said he'd be up for it. Modern covers of this quality are always a welcome sight in the market. This battle classic has an image area of 9.75" x 15" and it's in Excellent condition. Signed by both artists at the lower left. This lot also includes the short production overlay (the masthead type elements are on an acetate overlay).
