Description

Al Feldstein - "Weird Fantasy #8 Revisited" Painting Original Art (2005). Al Feldstein proved to be a key factor in the success of EC. Feldstein was a first-rate editor, writer, and artist for EC, and as an artist, he was recognized as a specialist in the "good girl/headlight" cover. Weird Fantasy #8 has always been a fan-favorite in this specialized genre. As a science fiction artist, Feldstein was also renowned for his super-sharp, stylish renderings which were often influenced by the fabulous "space-scapes" of Chesley Bonestell. This oil on stretched canvas has an overall size of 30" x 24", and the art is in Excellent condition.

Al Feldstein:(American, b. 1925) is a comic book editor, writer, and artist, and was one of the key talents at EC. After attending the High School of Music and Art, he began his career in the comic book field at the Iger shop in 1941. Feldstein joined EC in 1947, and worked there until his retirement in 1985. He drew for EC's love, crime, and western features, before the company started its more famous line of horror, science-fiction and suspense comics, known to EC fans as the New Trend. Feldstein cut back on most of his drawing activities during the mid-fifties, and became one of the New Trend's most prolific and innovative writers. When Harvey Kurtzman left EC after a dispute with Publisher William Gaines over creative control of Mad, Feldstein was made the title's new editor. Under his editorship, many of the magazine's now classic features came to life, such as Dave Berg's Lighter Side, Al Jaffee's fold-ins, Mort Drucker's movie parodies, and Antonio Prohias' Spy vs. Spy. After his retirement in 1984, Feldstein became a fine artist, and has also re-created many of his classic covers as large paintings .
