    Description

    Al Williamson - "Pellucidar/"Tarzan Try-Out Splash Page Original Art (1957). Al Williamson is a legend among comic fans for his graceful figure drawing and inspired fantasy settings. This spectacular splash page conjures up the fantasy world of E. R. Burroughs, Pellucidar, and may have also served as a sample piece to try to land work on the Tarzan comic strip. Early in his career, Al got artistic help from his friends, soon dubbed "The Fleagle Gang" by EC editor Harvey Kurtzman. The "Fleagles" included Frank Frazetta, Roy Krenkel, Angelo Torres, Gray Morrow, and George Woodbridge, and these young comic art turks of the fifties shared a passion for the fantasy realms of E. R. Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, Hal Foster, and Alex Raymond. The piece was signed and dated by Al Williamson at the lower right. The image area of this page measures 13.5" x 20.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
