DescriptionUnknown Artist - Classics Illustrated Junior #551 Cover Original Art (Gilberton, 1958). Prince Simpleton was the weakest and least ambitious of the king's three sons, but his devotion to animals and all things natural eventually brought him fortune. This bright, eye-catching painted cover shows Simpleton and his beloved pet rabbit as they encounter the titular "Queen Bee." The artwork measures 19.5" x 27.25", with an image area of 16" x 23". The art is in Very Good condition, with significant blunting at the corners and some discoloration in the margins, none of which affects the artwork. There is a 4" pencil mark just above the bee that could probably be removed. Also included in this lot is a copy of the printed comic book. Perfectly splendid and suitable for framing.
