Description

    Neal Adams - Original Cover Art for Strange Adventures #211 (DC, 1968). This tense confrontation scene comes from the very heart of the original Deadman run in Strange Adventures. The art paper measures 16.5" x 11.5", with an image area of 10" x 15". The condition of the art is excellent. The title logo and other type elements are replacements and have been carefully color-matched to the art paper, adding to the eye-appeal of the cover. The cover has a paste-on art correction that was done by Neal Adams to eliminate a foreground figure's hand that was originally drawn along the left border's edge. This correction area is original art, not a stat. It is applied with such craftsmanship that a very close inspection is needed to even detect it. A rogue's gallery of Deadman's nefarious circus peers is portrayed crouching behind him. While these figures were obscured by the coloring scheme used in the printed comic book cover, here they are seen in vivid detail. Neal Adams's fine-lined inking style was at its most masterful throughout this era.
