    Description

    Edgar Church Halloween Magazine Cover Illustration Original Art (c. 1930s-'40s). Not only was Church an important collector of first-generation comic books -- he also ran a busy advertising-design studio in Denver and served as an illustrator for that city's Smith-Brooks Printing Co. A marginal note identifies this splendid composition as an inside-back cover -- likely for a Smith-Brooks magazine called It, to which Church was a frequent contributor. Ink and fine-grain Zipatone on Bristol board, with an image area of 7" x 9". Excellent condition.
