    Joe Albistur - World Around Us #36 Splash Page Original Art (Gilberton, 1961). This compelling splash page portrayed an early surgeon plying his trade, fighting the good fight, in the "Fight for Life". The costumes and props were all convincingly drawn to create this fascinating period piece. The Illustrated Story of the World Around Us was an educational comic book published as a companion title by the same folks who brought us Classics Illustrated. The art measures an overall 16" x 23.5". The "Fight for Life" title caption is a photostat. There are two stains on the surgeon's left shoulder and arm, and also one on the kneeling boy's right arm. There is a moderate use of white-out for art touch-ups; otherwise the art is in Very Good condition. This would make a wonderful wall piece for someone in the medical profession.
