    EC Two-Fisted Tales #26 Cover Silverprint Proof (EC, 1952). Harvey Kurtzman really hit his stride with Two-Fisted Tales. Although he's best remembered today for his inventive satire stories in the original MAD, the historically-accurate war books carried some of his all-time best writing, and some great art, too. Case in point: this well-known cover, focusing on the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, aka the Changjin Lake Campaign. Kurtzman not only drew the cover, he created the color scheme by hand-coloring this original 1952 EC Silverprint proof, which was used as a printer's guide. Included with this print (which has an image area same size as the printed comic) is a separate page of notes, hand-written by Kurtzman, with instructions to the engravers (the page was originally glued to the back of the proof). The print is Very Good condition.
