    Description

    Jim Wilcox Slam-Bang Comics #4 Splash Page 1 Original Art (Fawcett, 1940). A rarity of great eye appeal and historical importance. Jim Dolan, crimebusting editor, tackles a new case as murder lurks in old Chinatown. Boasting an unusual illustrative style, more closely akin to pulp-fiction art than to the emerging comics idiom, this page crackles with crisp linework, violent action, and expressive faces and poses. Lower margin bears the stamp of the Harry "A" Chesler Syndicate, one of the pioneering comics-production studios. Ink over graphite on Illustration board. Image area, 11.25" x 16". Moderate age toning. Marginal editorial notes. Excellent condition.
