    Description

    Johnny Craig - Extra #4, Complete 6-page Story "Dateline: Rio Para" Original Art (EC, 1955). Johnny Craig's clean, handsome art shines in this two-fisted adventure that served as the cover story for Extra #4. Mystery novelist and comics writer Max Allan Collins has termed this story "one of the best of the six-page 'Datelines,'" and noted that "Craig does very well with this variation on Hitchcock's 'Lifeboat,' the sequences at sea being extremely effective and again has the courage to have his protagonist fail." As an "art bonus," four of the pages have Johnny Craig pencil sketches on their backs. The image area of each page measures 13" x 16", and the art is in Excellent condition.
