DescriptionJohnny Craig War Against Crime! #2 Cover Original Art (EC, 1948). War Against Crime was the title that really shifted EC into high gear, signaling publisher William Gaines' full involvement, after he reluctantly took over his late father's business. The EC Pre-Trend Crime comics were basically a stepping stone that led to the lucrative and very popular horror titles, and this particular title helped bring artist Johnny Craig into the fold. While some comic scholars are hesitant to credit this cover to Craig, we feel the faces display many of his artistic traits. The ink over graphite art, including the original EC masthead stat, is on EC Bristol board, and has an image area of 13.5" x 19", and other than a tiny stain or two, is in Excellent condition. The art is matted and framed with glass to an overall size of 19.5" x 25.75".
