Description

    Al Williamson, Al Feldstein, and Roy Krenkel Weird Fantasy #18 "Homesick" Cover Signed by Ray Bradbury Original Art (EC, 1953). Mention comics and science fiction to a comic art fan and two stellar names come to mind -- EC and Ray Bradbury. Penciler Al Williamson and editor/writer/inker Al Feldstein's awesome cover scene for the classic EC sci-fi story "Homesick" qualifies as nothing less than a delightful EC double-collectible. The cover caption proudly heralds an adaptation of a Bradbury story in this issue, and the science fiction legend has signed this cover in its lower left corner margin, as has Feldstein, in the lower right corner, along with a great drawing. Feldstein's razor-sharp brush strokes and Williamson's dramatic perspective of this panoramic space scene rival the work of another science fiction master, illustrator Chesley Bonestell. Roy Krenkel assisted with the inks on this cover, notably inking much of the main detail on the space station. To top all that, this cover comes straight from the collection of comics historian and fan legend Jerry Weist who wrote the indispensable memoir Ray Bradbury: An Illustrated Life: A Journey to Far Metaphor. This masterwork has an image area of 13.5" x 19.5", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the Jerry Weist Collection.
