    Description

    Johnny Craig - Original Splash Page Art for Crime Patrol #7 (EC, 1948). Captain Crime launches a counter-offensive on "the Field Marshal of Murder" in this riveting, and symbolic splash page by Johnny Craig. Craig, who was a triple-threat with his editing, writing, and drawing abilities, foreshadows his talent for handling the noir crime and horror subjects. Noted for his careful, crisply inked, and well thought-out background compositions, Craig's Captain Crime line-up rivals any action-adventure artist's rogues gallery! The art paper measures 15" x 22", with an image area of 13" x 18". Crime Patrol #7 was one of the first of William Gaines' EC comics to point the way to his later horror, shock, and crime comics. Crime Patrol became Crypt of Terror with issue #17.
