    Jaime Hernandez The New Yorker September 21, 2009 MF (Metal Face) Doom Illustration Original Art (New Yorker, 2009). From "Onward and Upwards With the Arts: A nonconformist rapper's second act" comes this underground hip hoppin' Jaime Hernandez illustration for the Ta-Nehisi Coates' article, "The Mask of Doom." Caption:"Doom explains his mask as an effort to 'control the story.'" In 1999, Daniel Dumile released his solo record, "Operation: Doomsday," under the moniker Metal Face Doom. His lyrics had grown more sinister. And in the guise of MF Doom, Dumile wore a mask. The Doom persona felt as though it had emerged from the graveyard of rappers murdered by glam-hop. This cool music piece by the famed co-creator of Love and Rockets has an overall size of 9" x 14", and the art is in Excellent condition. As an "art bonus there is in an unfinished comic page layout in pencil, and lettered (partially in ink) on the back of the page.
