Description

    Lou Fine - Jumbo Comics "Count of Monte Cristo" Page Original Art (Fiction House, 1940). Nothing shouts "Golden Age genius" quite as effectively as an original drawn by the supremely talented Lou Fine -- the art speaks for itself! Fine was influenced by hall-of-fame illustrators such as J.C. Leyendecker, John R. Neill, Harvey Dunn, and Heinrich Kley. Working closely with Will Eisner, Lou Fine pushed the envelope of the art of inking with a brush. Eisner recalled, "Lou was the only guy in the shop besides me who used a Japanese brush. When he picked it up, he put me to shame. He began to feather with it. I was good at it, but not as good as Lou. What a line!" This thrilling page of Lou's derring-do adaptation of Alexander Dumas' "Count of Monte Cristo" ran in an early issue of Jumbo Comics. The page has an image area of 15.5" x 22.5". The paper has aged, and the title logo is a replacement; otherwise the art is in Good condition. Any work by Lou Fine must be regarded as a treasure from the Golden Age of comics!
