    John Severin - Western Gunfighters #9 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1971). John Severin spent a lot of time during his days at EC Comics drawing Western comics. His Western-themed stories for Two Fisted Tales were great, loaded with the kind of detail editor Harvey Kurtzman demanded, and this high quality carried over to Severin's work done for Marvel two decades later. This cover, spotlighting the Black Rider, is moody and grim, with the Rider towering over the dead bodies of five gunslingers who were a little slow on the draw, as thunderclouds darken the sky. Delicately drawn on duotone Craftint board, the original art image area measures approximately 8.25" x 8.5"; the total cover measures 10" x 14". All the original type and stat elements are present on this Very Good condition cover, with a few stains evident on the mast and statted figures along the left side of the art. The piece has been professionally and attractively double mounted, and is ready for framing.
