Posters from serials typically have the exact same artwork which would have been considered a “Stock” poster. This poster would have a different title based on whichever new episode was released. This chapter 1 release is largely the most valuable and sought after chapter out of the 12. Stay tuned for the advance poster released for this serial called “Radar Men from the Moon”; another fantastic example of 50’s sci-fi movie poster artwork.
This particular original Chapter 1, Sky Marshal of the Universe: Commando Cody poster is in very good to fine condition. It does however demonstrate some minor and one major flaw. The minor flaws include scotch tape on the cross folds, some on the back of the poster and some discoloration at the top and bottom left corners in the margin . These will be removed prior to linen backing in 3rd quarter of 2014. Luckily this tape has not yet caused tape burn or any discoloration to the poster itself. The major flaw is on the bottom right corner; there is a 1 square chunk of paper gone. The rest of the artwork is like new and will jump up a grade following linen backing and the light restoration.
