Description

    Norman Saunders G.I. Joe #12 Painted Cover Original Art (Ziff Davis, 1952). In our 12 years of auctioning comic art we have never before offered cover art for a Ziff-Davis comic book! The legendary Norman Saunders became one of the top pulp magazine cover artists of his time, beginning in the late 1920s. During his later years he found renewed fame working for Topps Gum Cards on several series, including the celebrated Mars Attacks cards issued in 1962. During the 1950s he painted quite a few covers for Ziff-Davis. This portrait of "G. I." Joe Burch is painted so boldly and realistically, you can almost share the palpable joy of bashing the enemy into submission yourself. This ultra-cool un-PC painting, executed with oils on board, has an overall size of 15" x 22", and aside from light surface wear (it could use a cleaning), it's in Very Good condition.
