Description

    Reed Crandall Piracy #2 Cover Original Art (EC, 1954). EC master artist Reed Crandall pays homage to Howard Pyle's famous pirate painting with his pen and ink version of a no-holds-barred knife fight for the cover to EC's New Trend comic Piracy #2. Artist Angelo Torres has often said that he and Al Williamson often referred to Howard Pyle and N. C. Wyeth's masterful illustrations for inspiration, and Torres later praised this particular piece as a "magnificent job -- it looked like a woodcut." Note the incredible detail Crandall put into the costumes and background. Also take notice of the ship anchored in the background, a perfect touch. EC artwork is always highly prized and this piece, the first Piracy cover we have offered to date, will be a treasured addition to any collection. The cover art measures approximately 13.5 " x 19.75". The Piracy logo, and sidebar ship scene were re-created as a carefully color-matched replacement, and the main scene has been attached to a piece of support paper; otherwise, the piece is in Very Good condition.
