DescriptionJoe Simon The Comic Book Makers Preliminary Cover Painting Original Art (Vanguard, 2003). The preliminary design for the cover featured Joe Simon surrounded by some familiar (and some thinly disguised) characters! The Fighting American figure, along with Captain Marvel, and the barely-disguised Captain America and Superman, all made it to the final cover. The character in purple and gold became Stuntman on the finished cover. It is a shame that so much of this glorious detail and design didn't end up on the book. Attention Infinity Cover collectors... The bottom left section has some comic pages and an image of this very piece! Those comic pages and the cover are paste-up copies. The art is created in oil over blue pencil on 30" x 20" illustration board. There is a bit of glue residue on the bottom section from a missing paste-up transparency color bar. Overall in Very Good condition.
