    Description

    Russ Heath - Original Art for Our Army at War #241, Partial 12-page Story, "War Story" (DC, 1972). Few artists come to mind, when speaking of war comics, that are as revered as Russ Heath. Heath's comic panels are individual works of art. Each one is skillfully rendered with an attention to compositional structure that guides the viewer's eye smoothly from panel to panel. The dramatic use of line and shadow is placed with the skill of a light technician on the stage of a theater. This story showcases Heath's fantastic ability to realistically illustrate a variety of textures, locations, and military surplus. Over half of the pages are staged in a castle setting. This lot includes the first 12 pages of the 14-page story that was printed in Our Army at War #241. Each page is in excellent condition with an average size of 11" x 16.25".
