    Boxing!

    Johnny Craig - Original Cover Art for War Against Crime #9 (EC, 1949). From the late, great Johnny Craig comes this excellent cover featuring action both in the ring and at ringside. "The Kid" goes for a knockout while the cops close in on two "muggs". A superb, large (approximately 15" x 22") example of a dynamic cover from this talented craftsman. There is no white-out in evidence on this page. The title, logo and text box are all stats, but the word balloons and all art are original. There are several small cocoa-colored stains at the bottom of the page, which do not affect the art at all. Also, there is a small 1/2" tear at the right edge which comes right to the black border of the art, but not inside it. A thrilling original for any collection. As an added bonus, we are also including a CGC VG 4.0 copy of the comic book.
