    Description

    Tom Yeates Alien Encounters #1 Complete 4-Page Story "Watcher from the Skies" Original Art (FantaCo Enterprises, 1981). Yeates achieves an EC Comics-style excellence in a compact and merciless story about the 18th Century's slave-trafficking trade and a violent comeuppance for one crew of slavers. Hardly giving away too much to note that an outer-space agency is responsible for the rescue of the captives -- the source-magazine's title is Alien Encounters, after all. The story represents a transitional phase from the Underground Comix movement of the 1960s-70s into the independent-comics boom of the earlier 1980s. Ink and Zipatone shading film over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". There is light toning, scattered blue-line editorial markings, and Page 3 has an original art paste-up. Excellent condition.
