Warren Kremer - Original Cover For Little Lotta #1 (Harvey, 1955). Original cover art to #1 issues are always highly coveted by collectors, but here we have something special -- not only is this the cover to the premiere issue of one of Harvey's longest-running and most popular characters in her own title, but it also features a guest appearance by Little Dot as well. Ms. Lotta Plump probably never heard of the Atkins diet, and the humor-at-the-expense-of-the-obese vibe isn't exactly politically correct, but this uncluttered, well-drawn image -- showing Little L doing what she does best -- evokes the simple charm of a bygone era. Lotta and Dot were drawn on separate boards and then cut-and-pasted onto a common backing; there is minor glue staining along the bottom edge, but -- almost miraculously, considering Harvey's policy of removing and re-using headers -- this has all it's original logo and header stats, making this one of the most complete-looking Harvey covers we have offered. 9.5" x 14", with an image area of 7" x 10.5".
