    Description

    George Baker - Original Cover Art for Sad Sack #1 (Harvey, 1949). If you would like to own a holy grail in comic collecting, then grab this unbelievable piece while you've got a chance. There can only be one first issue of a title, and this one is definitely a trophy piece. In the early years, our hopeless hero was a civilian, and these issues are harder to find. But a cover? Fugetaboutit! The logo stat is a reproduction, but the artwork is all Baker. This page measures 10.5" x 16".
