    Description

    Robert Webb Fight Comics #85 Splash Page Original Art (Fiction House, 1953). Robert Hayward Webb, known as "Hay" among fellow artists, had been mentor to EC Comics' Al Feldstein during the 1940s at Fiction House. The influence is self-evident in the facial studies at lower center-right. Webb remained at Fiction House while EC surged to a greater prominence, but by 1953 the entire comics industry was sagging under the weight of censorship and changing tastes. This title page comes from the next-to-last issue of the pioneering Fight Comics -- a typically solid composition from an essential comic-book artist. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 18". Moderate age-toning and edge-wrinkling. Very Good condition.
