    Description

    Joe Kubert Star Spangled War Stories #58 Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1957). A reverse angle image of the cover makes for one stunning Joe Kubert splash page. Long touted as the greatest war comic artist ever, this early-Silver Age splash page certainly shows why. Kubert effortlessly combines great looking military hardware (from the planes to the .50-cal machine gun) with a totally believable human element. Kubert's use of black ink areas focus the eye on the subject matter and the frenzy of battle. Created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18". There are two places in the image area where production tape was used to block out some line art (one has a bit of residue near the tape). Kubert signed twice in the lower edge (one was covered by a paste-up that is now missing, leaving glue residue behind). Matted to 18"x 23". In Very Good condition.
