    Al Feldstein Weird Fantasy #8 "The Slave Ship" Cover Original Art (EC, 1951). Spa-fon! Hold onto your EC club membership buttons, fan-addicts -- offered here is perhaps Al Feldstein's single greatest science-fiction cover. Feldstein proved to be a key factor in the success of EC. He was a first-rate editor, writer, and artist for EC, and as an artist, he was recognized as a specialist in the "good girl/headlight" cover. Weird Fantasy #8 has always been a fan-favorite in this specialized genre. As a science fiction artist, Feldstein was also renowned for his super-sharp, stylish renderings which were often influenced by the fabulous alien lifeforms of Frank R. Paul. EC art has been skyrocketing in value and this is a great opportunity to put an all-time classic cover in your collection. The art is in Excellent condition with only minor wear, and an image area that measures 13.5" x 19.5". From the Jerry Weist Collection.
