Description

    Joe Simon and Jack Sparling - Unearthly Spectaculars #1 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1965). This dynamic image was created and used for the published cover to Harvey Comics' Unearthly Spectaculars #1, featuring Tiger Boy. The page was composed using a combination of original art and photostats from an earlier, unused cover version, drawn by Jack Sparling. The plant creatures and Tiger Boy's front and hind paws are original art. Tiger Boy's head and torso and the two cowering policemen, as well as the ground beneath them, are found on two photostat elements. The work has been so carefully pieced together that these elements join almost seamlessly to create this startling image. A smaller photostat image of Tiger Boy at the upper left, above the Harvey Thriller logo, and the Comics Code Authority stamp stat at the upper right, have both fallen off, and are missing. The title logo is a replacement copy. There are two small glue stain spots, one at the upper right above Tiger Boy's shoulders, and another at the lower left, below the policeman. The swinging sixties-era Harvey superhero comics had a very far-out, psychedelic vibe, and this cover is a seminal example. The overall paper size is 15" x 20", with an image area of 11.5" x 17". A true Harvey thriller!
