Description

    Jack Davis - Incredible Science Fiction #31 Cover Original Art (EC, 1955). Jack Davis rarely drew covers for the EC science fiction titles. In fact he only drew three, for Incredible Science Fiction #30-32, so if you need one for your collection, don't delay in bidding! Davis is a master at drawing action and his dramatic inking insures that once seen, this "when alien animals attack" moment will burn itself into your memory banks. As EC historian Bill Spicer has pointed out, "A theme that got good mileage was the blending of primeval with future scenes that appeared in no less than seven EC science fiction covers. Davis' Incredible Science Fiction #31 was the last of that group to combine a prehistoric-like beast with science fictional trappings." The space costumes and futuristic hardware in this mise en scene show the unmistakable influence of EC's heralded science fiction master, Wally Wood. The cover has an image area of 13.5" x 19.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
