    L. B. Cole - Suspense Comics #8 Cover Recreation Original Art (undated). Creator of more than 1,500 covers, brilliant wildlife artist, and pioneering comic book publisher Leonard B. Cole is a comic book legend! L. B. Cole worked as art director for a lithography company before entering the comic book field in the early 1940s. In his early work, he usually used flat colors and dramatic designs to create what he termed "poster color covers." He drew everything from funny animals to superheroes to jungle girls. This fabulous recreation was done sans logo and type, so that only the stark, surreal imagery is showcased. The cover has further been modified by replacing the original male figure at the lower left of the design with a gorgeous female, and also by removing the outerwear from the two entwined girls to reveal their exquisitely detailed lace undergarments. The mysterious figure looming behind the damsels in distress is Mr. Nobody. The condition of the art is Excellent, and the image measures approximately 7" x 10.5". L. B. Cole has signed the piece at the lower left.
