Original Sci Fi Art Splash Page 1943 Amazing Stories Empire of Jegga Star Wars
Published original art splash page signed HADDEN for Michael Hadden Smith used on page 10 & 11 of AMAZING STORIES magazine from November of 1943. The magazine contains 1 90,000 Word Super Novel, a story written by David V. "Empire of Jegga, " written by David V. Reed, is perhaps one of the most underrated, if not one of the best science fiction novels of the 1940s. It is a science fiction tale about a young millionaire's attempt to launch his own private moon expedition. They had expected to die, but they instead landed in a scene of utter chaos. Brewster and his crew soon found themselves in the middle of an interplanetary conflict, filled with what seemed like daily assassinations and political machinations. But Nick, who possessed scientific knowledge that was coveted by all sides in the conflict, found himself in the company of beautiful women, posing for the fawning military personal, and generally having what appeared to be a grand'ol time. Nick's crew, however, had other plans. They were going to be part of a cosmic revolution...
Packed to the brim with action and intrigue, and featuring an unforgettable climax, David V. Reed spins an epic tale in the Burroughs tradition. "Empire of Jegga" is a true science fiction classic. There are ties from this story to George Lucas and the movie Star Wars. Incredible in person this illustrator did not do much of this scratch art that I could find, none.
Scratch art they put black on the board and use a razor knife to cut through the paint so the image you see is from the white board under the black. The art's size is 20" wide X 14" tall & it does have some light scratches as shown. I show the art in the original published sci-fi magazine. It has been reprinted but there is no art in the new copies. The item "Original Sci Fi Art Splash Page 1943 Amazing Stories Empire of Jegga Star Wars" is in sale since Friday, February 28, 2020.
