    Description

    Mike Ploog Classics Illustrated #19 "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" Story Pages 39 and 43 Original Art Group of 2 Plus Lettering Overlay (Berkley Books & NBM/Papercutz, 1990). Ploog, with his dual citizenship in mainstream comics and the independent comics scene, brings to Mark Twain's Southern Gothic masterpiece a cinematic intensity that would make Will Eisner proud. (Eisner was a mentor to Ploog.) These spectacular pages depict pivotal moments: (1) Tom's panicked discovery of a corpse in a dismal cave; and (2) the homecoming of Tom and Huckleberry Finn, with a treasure-chest in tow. Accompanied by an overlay of fully lettered dialogue balloons for Page 43. Ink and watercolors over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Excellent condition.
