    Description

    Jim Steranko Bounty On Wildcat Paperback Book Preliminary Cover Original Art (Berkley Publishing, 1971). This preliminary drawing for the cover of one of the Wildcat O'Shea novels looks a bit more like Jim Steranko himself than the title character! What an amazing Western character pencil drawing this is; if you are a fan of Jim Steranko, Westerns, or the Wildcat O'Shea novels, then you are going to want this piece. The detail is astounding, and it's signed by the artist in the lower left corner. The novel series was written by Jack Bickham (as Jeff Clinton) and they were published in 1970-71. Wildcat was as unlikely and unusual of a Western hero as you could ask for. There was a sense of humor that ran alongside the adventure in these books. This drawing is graphite on paper with an image area of 8.5" x 10.5". In Excellent condition.
