    Fred Ray Tomahawk: The Long Rifle Cover Painting Original Art (1979). A spectacular full-color illustration of Tomahawk and Dan Hunter hunting in the woods as painted by Fred Ray, published posthumously as one of the covers to "Alter Ego" #19 in December 2002. Ray, an illustrious comic book artist, is best recognized as the primary Superman cover-artist during the 1940s Golden Age, whose work helped define the iconic look of The Man of Steel, and for his more than two decades working for DC Comics as artist for the comic "Tomahawk." Ray has signed and dated the lower right area of the art. The enthralling cover art is further enhanced by an impressive 30.5" x 42.25" frame created by artist Dan Makara, decorated in a collage style, utilizing various vintage "Tomahawk" comic images, including partial "Star Spangled Comics" covers (the title Tomahawk first appeared in). Makara has signed the frame on the reverse side. In Excellent condition.
