    Description

    Joe Simon Fighting American #2 Splash Page Recreation Illustration Original Art (undated). In 1954, Simon & Kirby's Crestwood Publications introduced the Fighting American. The character had a remarkable origin -- his soul was transferred from his own weaker body into that of his revitalized brother. Naturally, the hero exploded into super-charged action in true S&K style with his sidekick, Speedboy, in the splash page opener for "The League of the Handsome Devils." This mixed media on thin board re-creation has an image area of 14" x 20.5", and it's in Excellent condition. Signed at the lower right. From the Joe Simon Estate.
