    Joe Simon - Original Cover Art for Pocket Comics #1 (Harvey, 1941). Offered here is a museum-quality piece that one lucky bidder will have the opportunity to hang on their own wall. It really doesn't get much better than this. Created by Joe Simon, the gentleman that co-created Captain America, this is an astounding rendition of the Black Cat smashing Nazi goons alongside the Spirit of '76. The Black Cat is delicately drawn to exude pure sex-appeal while at the same time showing that she's more than ready to kick some Nazi tail. At a time when the Axis was a threat to our shores and our way of life, it was books like this that flew off the shelves. Now you can have this one-of-a-kind piece of Americana for your own. The image size on this piece is 8.5" x 11. The logo is a copy of later origin and there is minimal white out that does not at all obscure the over-all beauty of this piece. It has been nicely matted, framed and ready to hang. Don't miss your chance on this historic treasure!
