    Al Williamson and Angelo Torres - Original Art for Piracy #2, Complete 6-Page Story, "The Shell Game" (EC, 1955). This story amply demonstrates the talents of Al Williamson (penciler) and his good friend Angelo Torres (inker). Al Williamson is well respected comic artist and inker who has worked in comics for the past 50 years. Inspired by Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon, he is known for his tremendous sense of anatomy and ability to depict handsome, heroic figures. Angelo Torres, a late-comer to EC, laid down lush, sensuous inks in a style very similar to Frank Frazetta. His work is so good on some of the panels that, if we weren't so gosh darn polite, we would swear it was Frank doing the honors. The pages have minor editorial markings, light pencil marks, and a few smudges. The craft-tint panels have been pasted in. Overall size is approximately 15"x 22". Image size is approximately 13" x 19".
