Description

    Al Feldstein - Cover Art for Weird Fantasy #16 (EC, 1950). This dramatic cover depicts the final lonely moments of a man abandoned just beyond the rings of Saturn. Al Feldstein's clean and precise penciling and inking is a joy to behold on this outstanding cover that has to be seen to be truly appreciated. Feldstein was proudest of his work for EC's science fiction title and it shows in the composition and detail like the galaxy of stars in the background. The logo is a stat but the lettering down the left-hand side is original as this was the first issue in this style. Subsequent issues will be have a stat for the left edge lettering. There are red holding lines for the colorist on the spaceman and the spaceship and a 5" crease in the upper right corner that does go through the artwork. Overall a very clean and pretty page with whiteout used only for effect and to cover over mistakes. Feldstein's art does not turn up often and there is always heavy competition for premier pieces like this spectacular cover. 15" x 21".
