    Description

    Don Spaulding The Lone Ranger #79 Cover Original Preliminary Artwork (Dell Comics, 1955). Christmastime brings out the humor in even the Lone Ranger: The customarily grim frontier avenger cracks a great big grin in this delightful large-scale pencil study by one of the great Western artists. The image compares favorably with Spaulding's better-known fine-art paintings. The details of structure and shading are astonishing for a pencilled conceptual sketch -- almost painterly in the technique. Accompanying the drawing is a Fine-Plus copy of the finished comic book. Graphite on lightweight Bristol board, with a protective layer of vellum, lightly wrinkled. Image area, 13.25" x 19". Moderate age-toning, scattered spots of staining, and light smudging. Very Good condition.
