    Description

    Morris Gollub - Four Color #1119 Smokey the Bear Nature Stories Cover Original Art (Dell, 1960). Smokey the Bear, Little Smokey, and Specs brave the stormy sea to rescue Professor Dart who, even though he's a brilliant scientist, can't repair his own outboard motor! This outstanding fully-painted cover by Mo Gollub wrings every bit of excitement from this frantic situation, but we're even more impressed with the small details, including the worried look on Little Smokey's face, the subtle array of colors in the bloated thunderhead, and the streaks of rainfall in the far distance. This is one gorgeous cover, and we're not just blowing smoke up your chimney. The artwork measures 10.5" x 16" and is in Excellent condition. Also included is a copy of the printed comic. Remember -- only you can prevent tourist buyers.
