Cover features The Death-Defying 'Devil (Golden Age Daredevil) and The Flame as painted by Alex Ross.

Additionally, a riot scene can be seen behind the heroes. w/riot police clashing w/rioters. NM and ready for display as professionally framed under Tru Vue Conservation Glass. Comes w/reading copy of the issue this art was published for. Amazing example of Ross's photorealistic art that has made him one of the most popular comic artists of the modern era.
