    Description

    John Totleben Swamp Thing V2#88 Cover Preliminary Artwork Original Art (DC, 1989). John Totleben's original prelim layout and design for the cover, created before he would have attempted a larger painted image. This work was crafted in pure graphite on 10" x 15" paper. It is signed by Totleben in the lower right of this image area. After the fact, it has been adhered to a larger sheet of Bristol board made to resemble actual DC Cover stock Bristol board (this is a copy of their cover stock design). Over the top of that is an acetate sheet with low-res reproductions of the logo and corner box. This overlay is easily removed. In Very Good condition.
