    Description

    Bernard Krigstein - Valor #1 Complete 6-page Story "Strategy" Original Art (EC, 1955). One of the most respected artists from the world-class EC line-up, Bernard Krigstein was a master craftsman at the top of his form when the psychological thriller, "Strategy," was published. EC was under fire by the newly created Comics Code Authority, and EC historian Ron Parker has noted, "'Strategy' is a peculiar story for a comic based on the deeds of mortal combat, and one suspects EC was being cautious in this regard so they could hopefully get past 'comic book czar' Judge Charles T. Murphy and sell some issues." The yarn spotlights Krigstein's remarkable storytelling and draftsmanship. Each page has an image area that measures approximately 13" x 18". The word balloons and captions have been pasted on; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. A magnificent story from one of comics' greatest artists, these pages are sure to be a highlight of any EC art collection.
