    Description

    Reed Crandall Piracy #2 "Sea Food" Splash Page Original Art (EC, 1954). In the "Scuttlebutt" page of Piracy EC proclaimed, "Across these pages then will sail the plunderers and pillagers, the pirates and privateers, the whalers, the smugglers, the money-hungry pearl-divers and treasure hunters, the shanghaiers and the shanghaied, the mutineers, and all of the other adventurers so often glamorized in romantic fiction. Here, you will see them as they really were." Reed Crandall's detailed pen work was ideally suited for the short-lived Pirate genre. Reed's control over the cross hatching used to create lighting effects and textures ranks him among the masters of the pen, alongside the giants of illustration, J. C. Coll, Franklin Booth, and Howard Pyle. This page has an image area of 12" x 18". The title and lettering on this page have a few carefully crafted pasted-on elements; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
