    Description

    Joe Jusko Vampirella -- Ackerman Homage Original Art (2010). A definitive Vampirella portrait, quite apart from the character's signature comic-book series. Jusko delivered this one on commission as a memorial nod to creator Forrest J Ackerman, best known for Famous Monsters magazine. Jusko modified the original order by painting in a single rose (lower right) where the client had requested that a hand be seen rising from the grave to caress Vampirella's leg: "More Gothic romance and a lot less ghoulish," as the artist explains. High-gloss acrylics on heavy-duty illustration board. The image area is 11" x 16.5". Excellent condition.
