Description

    L. B. Cole - Blue Bolt #105 Cover Recreation Original Art (undated). Creator of more than 1500 covers, brilliant wildlife artist, and pioneering comic book publisher -- Leonard Brandt Cole is a towering figure in the field of comic book art! L. B. Cole began his art career as art director for a lithography company, before leaping headlong into the comic book arena in the early 1940s. Cole is renowned for the bold, flat colors, on his self-described "poster color covers." He was adept at every subject, from funny animals, to superheroes, to jungle girls, but his favorite genre was science fiction. Cole was also the publisher and cover artist for Star comics. This dazzling recreation of the cover to Blue Bolt #105, which was originally published by Star in 1950, reveals some titillating alterations. The Green Sorceress' costume has been abbreviated to practically nothing but a birthday suit! The skies above have been made even more cosmic, with the addition of a jam-packed galaxy of stars, and a modulated spectrum of hues, radiating across a wisp of space ether. The foreground, with its variegated volcano cones and lava flows, has been made much more detailed. L. B. Cole has signed the painting in the lower right. The overall size measures 14" x 21", and the art is in Excellent condition. As a bonus, a high quality, matted reproduction of the original published cover is included in the lot. If you crave a spectacular show-stopping cover recreation, search no further -- here it is!
