Description

    Simon Bisley - Doom Patrol #26 Cover Original Art (DC, 1989). That mad-man from across the pond, Simon Bisley, is at it again with this dada-inspired cover from the revived Doom Patrol series. This cover for "Nowhere Man" has a very graphic approach with its strong letter and symbol shapes, and thus pays a tip of the top hat to the visual poetry of the dadaists, the innovative artists that served as a precursor to surrealism, talents such as Guillaume Apollinaire and Kurt Schwitters. This cover also includes a touch of British pop culture humor ala the Beatles' surreal "Yellow Submarine" film. Modern age comics went beyond their own insular history and often resonated with cross-cultural influences. The art is rendered in acrylics on board, with a 10" x 15" image area, and is in Excellent condition. Get Biz-y with those bids!
