    Description

    Gerald McCann Classics Illustrated #149 Off On A Comet Splash Page 1 Original Art (Gilberton, 1959). Gerald McCann illustrated this adaptation of an 1877 Jules Verne novel. One of the earliest science fiction stories, it concerns a group of 36 people who are ripped from planet Earth by a passing comet, and find themselves hurtling through space as captives of the runaway celestial body! This exciting twice-up scale splash page sets the tone for the sci-fi tale. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 18". The story title and lower caption box are stat paste-ups. There is some whiteout art correction on the toned page (and also used as highlights). In Very Good condition. From the Falvey Classics Illustrated Collection.
