DescriptionJoe Kubert The Greatest 1950s Stories Ever Told Book Cover Original Art (DC, 1990). Who can fault Joe Kubert for falling asleep at his drawing board after all the late nights he spent over five decades, slaving over his pages, and hitting his deadlines so comic book fans would get their latest issues on time? As the copy for this anthology reprint book put it, "With the advent of television and the wrath of Congress, the comic book industry simultaneously faced the two greatest threats to its existence in the 1950s. This pressure served to fuel the creative community as the boundaries of the medium were expanded and some of the most legendary comic book tales of all time were crafted." Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and the Flash lead the all star cast of this sensational cover as they surround Kubert to thank him for helping them make it through the tough times. This painted cover has an image area of 12" x 18", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 18" x 24". The art has a couple of small pasted-on art corrections, most notably the Martian Manhunter figure, and Tommy Tomorrow's left shoulder; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. From the Joe Kubert Collection.
