Description

    Bill Elder Help! Magazine #12 Goodman Beaver Original Art (Warren, 1961). Elder's incredible attention to detail was never wilder than when illustrating the Goodman Beaver tales of Harvey Kurtzman. This astonishing horizontal spread from the satirical "Goodman Meets T*rz*n" is a self-contained lampoon -- sending up the Cold War, brand-name commercialism, sports franchises, and Third World preconceptions without breaking a sweat. Goodman Beaver himself, meanwhile, is sweating up a storm. Only the jungle lord, T*rz*n, can rescue him. Kurtzman used asterisks in place of vowels when referring to trademarked cultural icons -- in this case, the better to taunt the litigious copyright wranglers of the Tarzan franchise. Ink over graphite on Craftint (chemical shading) board. Typeset lettering. An image area of 14.5" x 9", framed to 21.75" x 16.5" Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
