    Description

    Bob Powell Green Hornet #37 Splash Page Original Art (Harvey Comics, 1947). The Golden Age reign of the superheroes was nearing an end. This story marks the final bow of Powell's costumed crimebuster, the Spirit of '76. The character appears in both masked guise and as a civilian. Powell's mastery of lively page design is solidly in place: He was destined for broader acclaim as a leading talent of the post-WWII boom in crime, SF, and horror comics. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 13" x 18". The piece shows prominent age-toning, with adhesive staining on the pasted logotype (part of which has fallen away). Powell's signature is prominent. Marginal notes contain instructions to the color department. Very Good condition.
