Design of the Week--The Cartoon Crimes of BIG TOWN!

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...
One of the coolest of our vintage Big Town / Illustrated Press designs is this one, showing the staff cartoonist illustrating a plot to kill the newspaper's racket-busting editor! (Why they couldn't just write it down is beyond me, but it makes for a great visual, eh?)
Note: the art is by the legendary Gil Kane (BlackMark, Green Lantern, Warlock, Spider-Man, etc.), who apparently used himself as the model for the artist!

Makes a great birthday or holiday gift for the graphic artist or art student in your life! (Not that we're suggesting they should plot to cause the demise of anyone..)
