    Description

    Lou Fine (as Louis K. Fine) Crack Comics #17 Story Page 3 Black Condor Original Art (Quality Comics, 1941). Lou Fine was quite simply one of the most aptly named artists in comics. His work on Black Condor, with his swooping and arching figures, was almost lyrical and balletic. Fine's fine line and deft ink work made him a stand-out in a field with many skilled competitors. The page was crafted twice-up scale in ink over graphite with blue pencil shading on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18". There are blue pencil color call-out notations in the artwork for the printer. The page is toned, with some graphite smudging and whiteout art clean-up; otherwise, in Very Good condition. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
