    Bernard Krigstein Piracy #6 Cover and Color Guide Original Art Group of 2 (EC, 1955). This gorgeous cover is as iconic as it is despondent... and matting the original line art next to the actual color proof is sheer genius! These look great together. The huge cover is produced in ink and red ink key lines over graphite, on white Bristol board, with an image area of 13.75" x 19.75". The text is all original paste-up and the art is signed by Krigstein in the image area. There is some slight tape residue, very slight creases, and an abrasion line just under the logo at the top of the original art portion. Overall in remarkably Very Good condition for its age. The color guide itself is quite large, measuring 9" x 12.5". It is printed on paper, then hand-colored with watercolors and affixed to a piece of Bristol board. It is signed by Krigstein in the image area as well, and in Excellent condition. This color guide may have been from the 1988 Russ Cochran reprint, but if so, it was still from the hand of Marie Severin, who did color work on the original as well as the reprint series. The overall matting size measures 29" x 25".
