DescriptionLou Fine National Comics #11 Uncle Sam Cover Original Art (Quality, 1941). Nothing shouts "Golden Age" quite like a Lou Fine cover. As one might imagine, Fine's covers have proven quite scarce. Prior to this sale, only six have been known to have been offered in the marketplace. As Jim Steranko wrote in his History of Comics, Volume Two, Fine's heroes "were Olympian in stature, classically featured and exquisitely, almost delicately, proportioned. Fine lavished a wealth of stipple, line-shaded, and cross-hatched detail with a brilliant brush-line technique not found in comics up to that point." These observations are spot-on as can be seen here, when America's Greatest Hero, Uncle Sam, engages in a star-spangled slugfest with savage saboteurs. One unfortunate traitor is about to take a bubble bath in molten steel. This masterwork has an overall size of 14.25" x 19", and aside from some paint loss in some areas of white-out, and some light wear to the pasted-on title logo, the art is in Excellent condition. From the Zoltan M. Szenics Collection.
