    Unknown Artist - Original Cover Art for All-New Comics #12 (Harvey, 1946). This wild World War II cover has the composition and feel of a Schomburg piece, and the Boy Heroes look kind of Kirby-ish, but it's obviously not the work of either artist. But it's a good chance to get an original wartime cover for a fraction of the price a piece by either of the master artists would cost! Probably inspired by the success of Kirby's Boy Commandos, the Boy Heroes consisted of: Corny, Punchy, Trigger, and Prince (an actual Dutch prince) who decide to join the war effort. The cover is in nice condition; the illustration board and title stats are yellowing, and three corners are a little crunched but the art is unaffected. The art itself is in great condition, all title stats are original, and there is no use of white-out! This piece measures 15" x 20" with an image size of 12.5" x 18".
