    Description

    Sid Greene and Nick Zuran Intimate Love #21 Complete 8-Page Pre-Code Story "A Fool in Love" Original Art (Standard/Pines Publ., 1953). Rare to find a Greene job outside the superhero genre -- this romance gem catches the great illustrator at an early stage, bringing to life a tale of heartbreak and reconciliation. One authoritative database ascribes both pencils and inks to Greene, but handwritten evidence on the opening page, here, cites the inker twice as Nick Zuran (or Zuron, as the handwriting varies). Easy to spot the expressive faces and cinematic compositional style of Greene, who would become one of DC Comics editor Julius Schwartz's favorite SF/heroic artists, both as a soloist and as a recognizable inker of other artists' pencil work. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 17". Moderate age-toning and scattered adhesive staining. Excellent condition.
