    Description

    John Severin Cracked Collectors' Edition #44 Cover Painting Original Art (Major Publications, 1981). Cracked goes to the Fair. This "Summer Fun!" issue promised a big contest, puzzles, and more. It should have made a bigger deal about this sweet John Severin original painted cover. It was the only part of the issue that wasn't a reprint. Severin displays his incredible and tenacious talents as a draftsman with an eye for meticulous detail on this piece that features 68 people, including Sylvester P. Smythe! One of our favorite bits is the rather evil looking cat. See if you can find him! Produced in watercolor on 17.5" x 18" illustration board, it is signed by the master artist in the upper right corner. Aside from some slight tanning, it is in Excellent condition. From the Cracked Vault Collection.
