POLICE COMICS (1941-53) Issue #9 Cover
VF: 8.0
This impressive cover art by Gill Fox is one of the earliest surviving pieces of Plastic Man original art known to exist. Plastic Man is the original stretchy superhero with a power later to be mimicked, but never duplicated, by both Mr. Fantastic and Elongated Man. In addition to his malleability, "Plas" was one of the first comicbook heroes to add a heavy dose of comedy to his tales of derring-do. Shown here in a smashing display of powers the kids loved, Plastic Man uses his head to dispatch a typical thug of the era. The character would embark on what would become a long, cult success which would span over various media as well as a couple of publishing houses. The Fox signature on the piece seals the deal on this amazing Golden Age treasure.
