    Description

    Lee Elias - Original Art Splash Page for Black Cat #13, page 11 (Harvey Publications, 1948). His work for Harvey may be his most famous, but Lee Elias contributed a large body of distinctive art while working for several different publishers during comics' Golden and Silver Ages. He broke in with Fiction House in the early 40s, then made his way to Harvey, where he gained fame during his long stint from such work as seen here. By the late 1950s, Elias was working on DC characters, including Green Arrow and Adam Strange. Later he revisited his pre-code horror work at Harvey by working on Warren horror magazines. This splash page from 1948 has three panels, each featuring "Hollywood's Glamorous Detective Star". 14" by 19 1/2".
