    Description

    Basil Wolverton - Original Art for Joker Comics (Timely). This page, from an undetermined issue of Timely's Joker Comics, is by legendary humorist Basil wolverton. Perhaps best known for his hilariously grotesque renderings, such as "Lena the Hyena," Wolverton established himself as a comedy genius in the early 1940s with his landmark strip, Powerhouse Pepper. The original art for these pages rarely surface for public sale, making this an especially significant opportunity for Wolverton collectors. A particularly desirable page, with the main character in every panel, this piece is in excellent condition and measures approximately 11.5" x 14.5". A unique opportunity to own a great piece by an acknowledged comic genius.
