Description

    Jack Kirby and Joe Simon Stuntman­ #1 Double-Page Splash Original Art (Harvey, 1946). This jam-packed superheroic masterwork was showcased in the post-war premiere of Stuntman. Simon & Kirby comics expert Harry Mendryk has noted, "When Joe Simon rejoined Jack Kirby after the war, rather than just return to working for DC, the two decided to produce their own comic books. They turned to Joe's old friend Al Harvey to do the publication for Stuntman and Boy Explorers Comics. Now they had complete control over the contents and did not have to deal with DC's editors. Wishing to recreate the success they enjoyed with Captain America, S&K returned to the use of the double-page splash in Stuntman." This spectacular action-adventure classic has an image area of 26.5" x 17.5", and aside from stripped-out caption lettering at the top of the pages (and missing paper surfaces), overall aging, glue stains, and heavy edge and corner wear, the art is in Good condition. From the Joe Simon Estate.
