    Ray Dirgo - The Jetsons #10, Unpublished Cover Original Art (Charlton, 1972). Sometime in the far future, ordinary wildflowers will be genetically altered to have personality, and human emotions. Therefore, it would be wise not to rudely pick one, or surely your fate will be the same as George Jetson's, as seen on this herbaceous cover from 1972. Ray Dirgo is the man responsible for the image, which was originally designed for use on the cover of The Jetsons #10. Perhaps the "injury to nose" motif was deemed too violent for children by Hanna-Barbera or the Charlton editors. In any case, this art was not used for the published cover of issue #10. Instead, another Ray Dirgo cover was commissioned, this time using a more sedate image of an archaic hot air balloonist gently floating by the Jetsons in their space car. This art measures 14" x 22.5" with a 12.5" x 19" image area. The page is in Very Good condition, and includes all the original logo and cover type paste-ups. Some very mild glue staining is evident, especially around the photostat logo. Signed by Ray Dirgo; this is a truly unique piece of original art.
