    Basil Wolverton Circus the Comic Riot "Spacehawks" Unused Page Original Art (Globe Syndicate, 1938). The first Spacehawks original we have ever offered or seen. This sci-fi space opera series pre-dates Wolverton's similarly named "Spacehawk" series that ran in Target Comics. Here you can see some of the crazy spaceship designs he would employ in this and later series. This was intended for issue #5, however the title stopped at issue #3. It was eventually published in Basil Wolverton's Fantastic Fables #2 by Dark Horse Comics in 1993. Wonderful action and page layout... check out the Bird's Eye P.o.V. in Panel 7. Also, note that he fit 12 panels on the page and didn't make it look crowded. Wolverton is known and beloved for his "ugly people" weirdo art, but his storytelling skills are on the mark. Crafted in ink on twice-up scale Bristol board with an image area of 13.5" x 18". Slight toning, with a minor stain in the lower left panel, and another on the paste-up logo. In overall Excellent condition.
