Joe Kubert The Brave and the Bold #34 The Landmark First Silver Age Hawkman Cover Original Art (DC, 1961). How many Silver Age Hawkman covers by the great Joe Kubert have ever made it to the open market? -- not many, that's for sure. And just to make art collectors' pulses race even faster, we now offer the mind-blowing, trendsetting, first Silver Age cover spotlighting the Winged Wonders as they mix it up with the Creature of a Thousand Shapes in the super-spectacular that helped launch a space-age "new frontier" for superheroics.
As demonstrated by the fact that we've only offered one Joe Kubert Hawkman cover previously -- and the fact that few first appearance Silver Age covers, much less such an undeniably classic image, has ever been offered at auction-- covers from the famed Brave and Bold Hawkman run are about as scarce and desirable as anything could be from the period. This iconic masterwork has been kept in a single collection since being purchased and is the definition of "fresh to market."
Definitive is the only adequate description of this DC masterpiece. This, the ultimate Kubert cover classic, has an image area of 12.5" x 18". The main cover scene is attached to a piece of backing cover stock, and the title logo, DC bullet, and the production markings outside the image area are replacements. The piece has been professionally restored to present in Excellent condition.
