    Shawn McManus - Original Cover Art for Cheval Noir #48 (Dark Horse, 1993). Talk about being tuned in and turned on! An experimental title that gave creators the freedom to explore stories and graphic storytelling techniques not necessarily available to them in mainstream comics, Cheval Noir ("Dark Horse" in French) brought such names as Moebius, Jacques Tardi, John Bolton, Brian Bolland, Phillipe Druillet, Rick Geary, Everett Peck, and Geof Darrow to an audience hungry for something different. The cover offered here, by the exceptional Shawn McManus, is a spot-on satire of our current "TV Generation." Even more appropriate in today's world of reality TV and media-manufactured celebrities than it was in 1993, this is a classic piece by a great artist. Measuring approximately 14" x 20" overall, this piece is in excellent condition and is signed by the artist.
