Description

    Al Feldstein Weird Fantasy #17 "In the Beginning" Cover Original Art (EC, 1953). Mention comics and science fiction to a comic art fan -- and one publisher rockets above the rest -- EC. Al Feldstein's spectacular cover scene for the classic EC sci-fi story, "In the Beginning," qualifies as one of the greatest "dinosaurs and rockets" covers ever. The cover caption also proudly heralds an adaptation of a yarn from Ray Bradbury, America's top science-fiction writer, making this piece even more special. Feldstein's razor-sharp brush strokes, and the dramatic perspective of his panoramic primordial swamp scene, rival the work of another legendary dino-master -- Charles R. Knight. This SF masterwork has an image area of 13.5" x 19.5". and it's in Excellent condition.
