    Marcus Boas - Science Fiction Illustration Original Art (circa 1990s). Best known for his fabulous painted covers for Heavy Metal and a series of Robert E. Howard books, American illustrator Marcus Boas has been busy with art assignments geared toward the European market. This piece may have been used for a foreign movie poster, although the monster looks similar to the one used in the 1950s drive-in classic starring Tim Holt, "Monster That Challenged the World." At any rate, this 18" x 24" oil on canvas board illustration features a real Boas trademark -- the beautiful, voluptuous female, seen here clutching a dagger. A Flash Gordon-style action hero, a monstrous slimy beast, and a scantily-clad damsel in distress -- this one has it all!
