    Description

    Johnny Craig - Saddle Justice #5, Splash Page 1 Original Art (EC, 1949). Femme fatale Colorado Rose stars in this riveting and symbolic splash page by Johnny Craig. The talented Craig almost immediately became a "triple-threat" with his editing, writing, and drawing abilities. This superb page foreshadows Craig's talent for handling the noir crime and "good girl" subjects. Noted for his careful, crisply inked, and well-thought-out compositions, Craig's Western-period splash demonstrates his ability to illustrate a story in any action-adventure genre. This splash has an image area of 13" x 18". Saddle Justice was one of the first of William Gaines' EC comics to pull together the incredible staff that would soon illustrate and write his "New Trend" horror, shock, and crime comics.
