    Jim Steranko - Eerie #25 Cover Painting Original Art (Warren, 1970). More than any other comics creator, the signature of Steranko conjures up the thought of cutting-edge "noir imagery," cinematic storytelling, and narrative experimentation. His most celebrated comic book work was for Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD for Marvel Comics, where he drew lasting acclaim for his innovations in sequential art in the Silver Age of comic books. Steranko infused surrealism into the medium. This enigmatic painting from 1970 is the one and only cover painted by Jim Steranko for Warren Publishing. Measuring 14" x 20," and in Excellent condition, its sombre tones and visual tension perfectly aligns the design with the emotion -- a Steranko hallmark! This cover should certainly appeal to any fan of Steranko, whose entrance into the world of comics heralded new ways of telling a story, dynamic new designs in illustration and layout, and paved the way for more ambitious formats.
