    John Severin and Bill Elder Prize Comics Western #93 American Eagle Cover Original Art (Prize, 1952). Hoka-hey! Cast your eyes on this pulse-pounding American Eagle cover by soon-to-be EC artists John Severin and Bill Elder -- American Eagle, the mightiest of the Crows, is outmanned in a deadly knife and tomahawk battle. Elder's careful control of the line weights in his inking helps focus the readers' attention on the Eagle, and keeps the Severin design of this melee from becoming too confusing. Issue #85 of Prize Comics Western introduced American Eagle as its new main feature. From then on, American Eagle would appear on every cover and always was the lead story. John Severin had appeared in Prize Comics Western for some time, and he became the lead artist until issue #113. This masterpiece is big and bold; the cover image measures 12" x 17.5". The title logo and the Severin and Elder signature box are carefully color-matched replacements, and there is a very small surface paper loss to the illustration board (in the lower right corner, outside the image area); otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. You'll be hard pressed to find a more thrilling Severin and Elder American Eagle cover than this one!
