    Joe Simon Captain America Comics #9 "The Case of the Black Talon" Partially Inked Cover Re-Creation Original Art (undated). Cap and Bucky have a devilish time in cornering an insane murderer who, forced by fate to paint horrendous portraits, decides to paint these type of paintings of the men he intends to murder. Offered here is a poster-sized cover re-creation of Captain America Comics #9 by Joe Simon, featuring the star-spangled superhero as he takes on the murderous artist, Pascal Horta. Rendered in pencil (and partially inked) on heavy paper, this piece has an overall size of 23.5" x 29". There is a large closed tear at the upper right above the title lettering, and a large stain, from water damage, at the lower right; otherwise, its condition is Fair. Note the "Defendant's Exhibit" legal evidence sticker from 2001 at the lower right margin. From the Joe Simon Estate.
