    Spy Smasher (Republic, 1942). Fine/Very Fine. Stock One Sheet (27" X 41"), Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"), Title Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14"), Lobby Cards (7) (11" X 14"), & Original Studio Envelope (11.5" X 14.4"). Spy Smasher, created by C.C. Beck and Bill Parker, is a favorite among comic fans, and the 1942 Republic Pictures series is equally as beloved. Twelve episodes feature hero adventures during the height of Nazi occupation in France. Included in this lot is the stock one sheet which advertises the serial as well as the Fawcett Comics Publication. It is offered in the pressbook but it seems to be a scarce commodity. Also included in the lot is the lobby card set of Chapter 1-- "America Beware" and a title and lobby card from Chapter 2--"Human Target" (which includes the original studio envelope), and a title card with six lobby cards from Chapter 6-- "The Invisible Witness." Unrestored items with excellent color and overall presentable appearances may include edge wear, pinholes, creases, chips or tears, tiny paper lifts, and unobtrusive smudges. The one sheet is restored showing wear and chips from the border, primarily the left. The borders have been airbrushed and there was slight bits of airbrush into the left and right image.
