    Joe Gallagher All-American Comics #59 Story Page 3 The Atom Original Art (DC Comics, 1944). Mighty rare that a Golden Age Atom piece will surface nowadays -- always a treat to the eye. The toughest little guy in comics can be counted on for plenty of acrobatic action, and this page is a choice example. Al "Atom" Pratt dodges a runaway automobile, suits up in his crimebuster costume, and lays siege to the bad guys in scarcely the space of eight panels. Gallagher's solid radial page composition draws energy from the juxtaposition of squared and circular border-shapes, and from the dynamic spotting of patches of black-ink gravity. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Twice-up image area, 13" x 18.5". Moderate toning and smudging. Very Good condition. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
