DescriptionLou Fine - Jumbo Comics, "The Count of Monte Cristo" Page Original Art (Fiction House, 1940). Here's a masterwork hailing from the dawn of the Golden Age, drawn by comics legend Lou Fine. Fine was inspired by book and magazine illustrators J. C. Leyendecker, John R. Neill, Harvey Dunn, and Heinrich Kley. As a result, working closely with Will Eisner, Fine set a new standard for the art of inking with a brush. His first work appeared in Jumbo Comics in 1938, where he worked on "Stuart Taylor," and an adaptation of Alexander Dumas' "The Count of Monte Cristo," as well as contributing several covers. With his dynamic layouts, and exceptional brush technique, Fine soon became an "artist's artist," admired by many others in the field at the time. This exquisite page has an image area of 15.5" x 19.5". The paper has tanned, and is some heavy staining in the first three panels; otherwise the condition is Good. From the John McLaughlin Collection.
