Description

    Joe Simon Boy Commandos #2 Adolf Hitler Cover Re-Creation Original Art (undated). As a tribute to his artistic collaborator, Jack Kirby, Joe Simon re-created, as paintings, several of the team's best Golden Age covers. The piece offered here re-creates a classic WWII propaganda classic as the Boy Commandos and Captain Rip Carter give der Fuehrer the "bum's rush." The Commandos were a combination of "kid gang" comics and war comics. The title starred an international cast of little tough guys fighting the Nazis -- or in their own parlance, "the Crazies." Simon has faithfully rendered this art in the signature Simon & Kirby style, and enhanced this piece with vivid coloring. Simon, celebrated by many fans as a first-rate talent in his own right, has combined his talent with his admiration for "the King" to make this piece a true showpiece. This mixed media masterwork has an image area of 15.5" x 21", and aside from some art material markings in the margins, and minor wear, the art is in Very Good condition. From the Joe Simon Estate.
