Illustration: 9 x 12.25 inches. Overall with matting: 12 x 16 inches. Spectacular pencil sketch of the iconic cover for Tim Vigils Faust: Love of the Damned #2, the sadistic sex-pot, Claire, Mephistopheles woman. Vigil recreated the cover here with a bit more evil in the face and a little more flash of the breasts. The cover is a very well known underground image in the adult comic world. A one of a kind piece, signed by Vigil in pencil at the lower right corner. A bit sunned in the middle due likely to previous owner matting image in a smaller mat window and lesser frame, nonetheless this is stunning piece. Dark Parks has chosen to matt the illustration showing the full signature of Vigil at the bottom, at it should be. Most suitable for framing. The Faust series was created by Tim Vigil (artist) and David Quinn (writer), It was published irregularly with 15 issues over a span of 15 years (1987-2012). Our sketch is the cover to #2, published in 1988. The series is known for its strong graphic violence and sexual situations, which at the time was uncommon and made the book an instant hit in the underground scene. The original comic was adapted into a film by director Brian Yuzna in 2001.
It is also believed that Faust was the inspiration for Todd McFarlane’s Spawn character. Also included is the Act #2, 4th printing of the comic which could be framed next to the sketch.
