    John Severin Cracked #93 Cover Painting Original Art (Major Publications, 1971). From Charlie Chaplin to Charlie Chan, this incredible watercolor painting features so many stars it would be hard to list them all! But anytime we can see the mighty John Severin draw Dracula, "The Duke", Karloff's Frankenstein (in a Tux), Kate Hepburn, and Bogey, we are tickled pink! Oh, and Cracked Mazagine's mascot, Sylvester P. Smythe, is in there also. This was later re-used as the cover for Cracked Collector's Edition #8 (1975), and Super Cracked #25 (1985).
    Produced on illustration board with an image area of 12.5" x 17", it is signed by Severin in the lower left on Humphrey Bogart's lapel. There is tanning and two creases, one in the middle left side, the other is on the lower right corner. When it was used for the cover of Super Cracked, a print of Michael Jackson's face was pasted over Audrey Hepburn's. Overall in Very Good condition. From the Cracked Vault Collection.
