DescriptionJack Sparling Tell It to the Marines #5 Splash Page Original Art (Toby Press, 1952). Sparling is in his rambunctious prime on this vivid splash featuring Marine heroes Spike Dowdy and Bat Bentley -- caught in a tryst with two gang molls by their mobster boyfriends. At once comical and suspenseful, the page boasts some of the most emphatic brush inking we've seen lately. And you can't go wrong with two bad guys named Homicide Hoff and Mayhem Magoon. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 18". Light toning and adhesive staining. Lower tier of artwork is pasted in place. Very Good condition.
