    Larry Lieber - Original Cover Art for Western Action #1 (Atlas, 1975). Larry Lieber wrangles both the story and the cover art for this first issue of Atlas Comics' Western Action.The interior Kid Cody story,"Birth of a Badman," is a classic tale of vengeance and smoking guns written by Lieber; and his cover art catches all the fury and firepower within. The overall art size is 11.5" x 17.5" with a 10" x 15" image area. The work is very clean, with some minimal white-out usage along the top and bottom edges, and on the father figure's collar. This lot includes the original pen and ink art, plus the original production art, which features a stat of the original art and original logo, word balloons, and indicia paste-ups. Both pieces are signed by Larry Lieber at the bottom right.
