    Description

    Jack Davis and Harvey Kurtzman Frontline Combat #1 "Enemy Assault" Title Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1951). Here is the first Jack Davis Frontline Combat page Heritage has offered to date. As all true EC fan-addicts know, among Harvey Kurtzman's best works are his hard-hitting war stories -- his unflinchingly truthful approach combined with a riveting "in-the-trenches" point of view revolutionized the genre. Jack Davis' gritty, moody art is at an all-time peak for this pre-Code title page, one of his best for the war genre. As an "art bonus," the back of the page sports two Harvey Kurtzman pencil sketches. This first-rate EC masterwork has an image area of 13" x 18", and the art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Davis in the upper left margin.
