    Description

    Joe Kubert Men of War #6 Cover Original Art (DC, 1978). The classic DC war cover... turned on its head! Of course we all know the many covers that had G.I.s saying "it's all clear" while the reader sees half of the Wehrmacht is sneaking up behind them. Here, it's some Germans who are the overconfident ones. Kubert really delivered here, from the sneering soldiers to the starry night which is about to erupt in combat. Our hero is Gravedigger, a great recurring character who was one of just a handful of black comic heroes in action at the time. All of the stats are original except for the "Gravedigger" stat at bottom. The art is on a board cropped to the image area that's attached to a larger board. This piece has an image area of 9.75" x 15". It has been professionally conserved. The board is slightly rippled and a few small traces of prior staining can still be seen on the back of the piece. Overall Very Good condition.
