    Description

    Angelo Torres Classics Illustrated Special Issue #167A "Prehistoric World" Story Pages 38, 39, and 42 Original Art Group of 3 (Gilberton Publ., 1962). Torres asserts himself as a dinosaur/prehistory master with these fine selections from a book that sometimes is mistaken for the same publisher's "Prehistoric Animals" issue of The World Around Us (#15, 1959). Where his slightly older mentor, Al Williamson, had dominated the dinosaur sections of that earlier title, Torres claims a larger stake in Classics' "Prehistoric World" epic. Torres was soon to advance to greater prominence with the Warren company's Creepy line of horror-revival comics. These splendid pages depict flying reptiles, proto-birds, and the process of fossilization. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 11.5" x 18". Faint toning. Loosened page-heading on one piece. Excellent condition.
