Description

    Mike DeCarlo Tales of Suspense #72 Captain America vs. The Sleeper Cover Homage Original Art (2013). This tribute to Jack Kirby's "The Sleeper Shall Awake" cover spotlights a landmark Silver Age image, as Captain America took the Marvel reading comic world by storm. This is not a line-for-line re-creation, which Mike DeCarlo feels is somewhat boring and misleading. Instead, Mr. DeCarlo has done a well-conceived tribute to Jack Kirby, with his updated inking approach. This piece measures 10.5" x 15.75" overall, and is all hand-done. The piece is drawn in graphite and ink on paper (which is mounted to a thicker support paper); otherwise, it's in Excellent condition. Signed at the upper right.
