DescriptionLou Fine National Comics #5 Uncle Sam Cover Original Art (Quality, 1940). This famous "skull cover" must count among the very most exciting Golden Age comic art finds of recent history. This slam-bang "shudder pulp" scene starring Uncle Sam showcases many classic Golden Age motifs -- a gorgeous "good girl" in bondage, a knife-wielding hooded menace, an evil skull, and explosive super-heroic action, all rendered to perfection by the legendary Lou Fine. Quicksilver, King of Speed, made his first appearance in this landmark issue that also featured the origin of Uncle Sam. This masterpiece has an overall size of 16" x 20.75". The vintage art board has been archivally mounted to a piece of acid-free board, and the title logo is a carefully color-matched replacement; otherwise, no other conservation or restoration has been done to the art, and it is in Very Good condition. From the Zoltan M. Szenics Collection.
