Description

    Simon Bisley - Doom Patrol #42 Cover Original Art (DC, 1991). The Charles Atlas-inspired Flex Mentallo made his first appearance in Doom Patrol #35. Flex was, quite literally, the 90-lb weakling who became a superhero by responding to an ad similar to those that ran for many years in comic books; the character became the grounds for a lawsuit against DC by Charles Atlas. This retro cover was purposely distressed and taped so as to appear as an aged poster or comic book cover from Flex's "glory days." The Biz even signed his name in an "old school" signature box ala Milton Caniff or Bob Kane. The art has an image area of 10" x 15", and, aside from its artistically and intentionally distressed surface, is in otherwise Excellent condition. Add some punch to your portfolio with this superb Bisley portrait of a powerhouse.
