    Description

    Marie Severin EC Comics Bullpen Staff Illustration Original Art (2000). Severin wonderfully captures (and lampoons) the famed staff of the 1950s-era EC Comics Group. They certainly were "An Entertaining Comic Group". Some of the depicted "Knights of the Round Table" include publisher Bill Gaines, Al Williamson, Wally Wood, Graham Ingels, Harvey Kurtzman, John Severin, Al Feldstein, Reed Crandall, Jack Davis, Bill Elder (aka Will Elder), Jack Kamen, Johnny Craig, and Bernie Krigstein. We love the color marks on Marie Severin's hands in the top left. She was the colorist for EC Comics in the '50s. Some nice touches are the Old Witch, Vault Keeper, and Crypt Keeper in the crowd. Ink and watercolor with a matted image area of 15" x 9.75". There is a nice hand-lettered scroll bit on the mat under the image area. It is glass front framed to 21" x 16". It is signed and dated July 2000 in the lower right. In Excellent condition. From the Personal Collection of Al Feldstein.
