    Tom Sutton (Attributed) - Original Cover Art for War Then and Now #1 (Charlton, 1974). This striking cover portrays the men of war, throughout all ages, banded together for one fearsome march. With this symbolic piece, mankind's fighting forces are represented with ultra-gritty detail. The Charlton logo and the title block, "Then and Now", are stats. A small type fragment has fallen off of the issue number box. The art paper is 14" x 22.5" with an image area of 12.25" x 19". A one inch tear in the upper right corner of the border barely enters the art area. Perhaps this cover was done for a European comic book edition as the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide lists War #1 as being published in July 1975, and this art's date precedes that. Additionally, there is a price of UK 6p listed, making an already fascinating image even more of a conversation piece.
