    Description

    Matt Baker Journey Into Fear #1 Story Page 7 Original Art (Superior Publishers, 1951). This page of the story "Preview of Chaos!" began life as a Black Condor story in the late 1940s for a character revival that never happened. When the pre-Code horror comics boom hit, Jerry Iger retooled the art and story to edit out the Black Condor's costume and replace him with a man in a business suit. They didn't even change the name of his alter ego, Thomas Wright. You can see the white-out used to change his caped costume into a business suit, and Tom Wright's name on this page! Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 18". The page is tanned, but overall in Very Good condition.
