    John Severin - Battle Ground #20 Cover Original Art (Atlas, 1957). This cornered G.I. is in a bit of a sticky wicket -- a savage fire-fight seems inevitable -- what tension! John Severin's preternatural attention to costume details and accurate portrayals of weaponry made him the undisputed master of war comic cartooning. Severin's big and beautiful Atlas war cover has an image area that measures 13.25" x 20" and the page has been trimmed right to the image area. The cover was carefully collaged together using numerous art patches, but they do little to intrude on the overall eye-appeal of this drama. Several of the type elements have slipped off, including the issue number box and cover date, and there is a glue residue stain at the lower left, where a caption box has slipped off the art; otherwise the art is in Very Good condition. This cover is sure to be the pride and joy of any war comics fan or John Severin enthusiast!
