    Description

    John Severin and Bill Elder Prize Comics Western #93 Cover Original Art (Prize Comics, 1952). Severin and Elder, better known for their separate masterful work at EC Comics, registered just as strikingly as an occasional team for the Prize brand. This inter-tribal attack scene is a splendid example of the artists' ability to render a complex composition urgent and coherent. (They also handled many of this issue's interior pages.) Rich in facial detail and aggressive body language, the tense radial composition captures two brilliant artists at a shared peak of expressiveness, each seeming to inspire the other. This issue #93 also is recorded as Prize Comics Western V11#2. Ink over graphite on illustration board, with logotype pasted in place and integrated with the art. Two small pencil sketches appear on reverse. Image area, 12" x 17.5". Light toning. Excellent condition.
