    JAMES O’BARR • Splash page “Velocity” from his famous graphic novel The Crow (1980s)

    The Crow is one of the best-selling graphic novels of all time (approaching one million copies worldwide) and it was made into the highly successful film starring Brandon Lee, who was tragically killed during the filming. The Crow continues to be a perennial seller and creator James O’Barr remains a highly popular artist on the international convention circuit. His published Crow art is seldom seen in the market, and this page is an exceptional example.

    The wordless full page (the splash to the “Velocity” chapter) contains wonderful architectural detail and prominently features the title character. A beautiful original page from O’Barr’s key creation that would be stunning framed and on a wall.

    Medium/Size/Condition: Created with brush, pen, ink and Zip-a-Tone on a large sheet of Bristol board measuring 14 x 22 inches. There is a crease running parallel to the top edge about 2.5” from the top from being folded at one point long ago. There is a small ¼ inch tear on the right side near the Crow’s shoulder. Very minor creases in the corners. Otherwise fine condition.

    Provenance: From the collection of James Kitchen.
