Yeah, in there for sure. He did so many you almost might have to do him by genres. And, even that would be hard...

This cover is actually by Warren Kremer....his only Harvey horror cover. And the story goes that it was a self portrait waded up and then redrawn.

love this thread, except it shows my ignorance. Maybe I’ll make flash cards out of it to improve my game.

anyway, for Alex schomburg, someone already posted MMC 66 and All Select 2, which are great. Cap 37 shares honors as the pinnacle of his work

Beautiful copy my friend!   :luhv:

If I’m not mistaken, Cap 37 was one of the three Schomburg covers commissioned for Ltd. Ed. Prints by Buccaneer Press back in the 80’s.  It’s one of the highlights of Schomburg war era covers.  Another fave is Marvel Mystery #66 which was also selected for print series recreation by Buccaneer Press.  I posted scans of that title and the commissioned Schomburg recreation earlier in this thread.

Cheers,

:tink:

Right. Along with All Winners 11, if memory serves. All 3 are great!

Absolutely! Remarkably vivid, iconic art, ...some of the very best of Alex’s recreations.

Have no idea who owns the other commissioned gouache cover recreations, but I envy them. Given today’s OA market and premium placed on Schomburg’s GA covers, there’s no telling where a final hammer price for these two recreated Cap and All Winners paintings would land.  Purely for the sake of speculation, my best guess would be six figures and juice.  hm
