    Harvey Kurtzman Help! #16 Preliminaries/Storyboard Layouts for Complete 4-page Fumetti Story "Inside Requiem for a Heavyweight" Original Art (Warren, 1962). In his only extended solo story for Help!, Kurtzman combined movie stills with "behind-the-scene sketches" to give the reader a backstage perspective. Harvey Kurtzman's storytelling genius is revealed in this storyboard-style layout for a story that appeared in the November 1962 issue of Help!. Drawn in mixed-media on grid paper, and titled "Inside Requiem for a Heavyweight," these layouts are filled with the legendary Kurtzman attention to detail. The pages were framed alongside each other into a magazine spread mockup. Each individual page measures approximately 10" x 12.5" and the art has been matted and framed to an overall size of 29" x 35". The art is in Excellent condition. A copy of the printed fumetti story is included with this lot.
