    Description

    Frank R. Paul Famous Fantastic Mysteries August 1942 "A Roman Resurrection" Science Fiction Illustration Original Art (1942). Frank R. Paul was the Promethean talent who blazed a trail for all that followed in the art of speculative fiction -- from his sublime, star-studded Amazing Stories pulp covers to his unforgettable, incendiary comic book classic featuring a red-hot Human Torch burning though a bank vault door on the cover of Marvel Comics #1. As his fellow science fiction legends have enthused, "Paul remains the undisputed king of the pulp artists" (Sir Arthur C. Clarke), and "Paul's fantastic covers for Amazing Stories changed my life forever." (Ray Bradbury). This Paul illustration for Lee Meriwether's story has an image area of 15" x 12.5", and the piece has been matted and framed to an overall size of 18" x 14". The art is in Excellent condition, and a copy of the pulp is included with this lot.
