    Description

    Al Williamson - Gold & Silver Overstreet Comic Book Quarterly #4 Hand Colored Science Fiction Cover Production Piece (Gemstone, 1994).
    Science fiction heroes and space opera fantasy have made a life-long impression on Al Williamson. As a youngster, he was raised in the South American city of Bogota, Columbia, and his love affair with science fiction began when he was mesmerized by the 1940 "Flash Gordon" movie serial starring Buster Crabbe. Williamson has admitted, ''I was immediately taken with it. It took over my life." This beautiful, hand colored production piece (the color was hand painted over a photostat of the black line work to produce the "camera-ready" image for the printed cover) features many of the Williamson science fiction hallmarks -- vast cosmic vistas, sleek rocket ships, handsome heroes and heroines, and speckled space lizards. This piece has an image area of 11.5" x 17", and it has been framed to an overall size of 18.5" x 24". The piece is in Excellent condition.
