    George Evans Piracy #6 Complete 6-Page Story "The Skipper" Original Art (EC, 1955). Ambition and greed turn to madness, death and destruction in this seafaring tale expertly rendered by the underrated George Evans. First mate Richard Carson lusts for a captaincy of his own, and arranged a tragic disaster to rid himself of his superior officer, but nobody gets off lightly in an EC story, and Carson's comeuppance is fittingly ironic. Evans had the most realistic style of all the EC bullpen, and the stunning attention to detail and accuracy always lent his stories a disturbing verisimilitude, and this chilling tale showcases him at the top of his form. Each page has an image area measuring 13" x 18". Several panels have elements pasted-in, especially on the last page where it appears the order and content of several of the captions was changed during the editing process; otherwise, the pages are in Very Good condition, with only minor aging at the edges. A tidy tale of maritime madness, this is a must-have for any EC collector.
