    Basil Wolverton - Illustration Original Art (undated). Basil Wolverton's comic book work alone totals more than 1,300 pages, appearing in regular format comic books such as Spacehawk, Powerhouse Pepper and Plop!. His work appeared in publications as diverse as Mad, Life, Pageant, Outboard, Cracked, and Famous Monsters of Filmland. Wolverton was elected to the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in July of 2000, in recognition of his lifelong contributions to the contributions to the industry. He was also inducted into the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1991. You can see why he was called "The Rube Goldberg of the human anatomy," in this weird, wacky 11.5" x 7.25" illustration. There is one very small stain at the left, otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
