DescriptionLou Fine National Comics #9 Uncle Sam Cover Original Art (Quality, 1941). As legendary creator Gill Fox stated, "There's no question that Lou Fine was a genius." Cartoonist and ardent Lou Fine admirer Bob Fujitani has said about his peer, "When I first saw his work I was flabbergasted. I couldn't believe anyone could create these action shots and his beautiful brush work he had." Another cartoonist, Murphy Anderson, simply said, "He was almost a poet the way he drew his figures." Uncle Sam leads the kids of America in a spirited charge against foul piracy in this Golden Age rumble. The character portraits at the bottom of the page are pasted-on elements that may have been drawn by Quality editor/artist Gill Fox. This cover has an overall size of 14.5" x 19". The vintage art board was cut into two pieces featuring the title logo and the main scene, and both have been archivally mounted to a piece of acid-free board; otherwise, no other conservation or restoration has been done to this cover. There are pieces out of the title logo's edges, and there is a missing art correction paste-on from a figure's arm (in the lower right); otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. From the Zoltan M. Szenics Collection.
