DescriptionNeal Adams Green Lantern and Green Arrow #1 Paperback Back Cover Illustration Original Art (Paperback Library, 1972). Green Lantern evoked the inspirational, humanitarian spirits of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy in this dramatic illustration for the paperback collection of the award-winning, trend-setting collection of "relevant" stories by writer Denny O'Neil and artist Neal Adams. The series was a huge critical hit due largely to Neal Adams' unparalleled ability to combine realistic contemporary illustration with traditional superheroic storytelling.
This image was originally intended for the front cover of the paperback, as shown on a layout (composed entirely of stats) with a rough color guide on an overlay accompanying this lot. Note the tagline (not used on the printed version) "Comix That Give a Damn!"
As shown on a copy of the paperback that accompanies this lot, the image ended up being used on the back cover, with a different version of Dr. King's face pasted over the original version.
This pencil and ink masterwork has an overall size of 11.5" x 17.5". The title logo and word balloons are a stat, and aside from a torn lower right corner (outside the image area), the art is in Excellent condition.
