    Description

    Rudy Palais (attributed) Warfront #31 Splash Page Original Art (Harvey Comics, 1957). Palais' meat-and-potatoes horror-comics idiom had gone idle with the arrival of the Comics Code censorship machine (in 1954), but the artist sustained his gritty approach to hard-boiled storytelling with the surviving war comics. This emphatic and deeply emotional composition finds a soldier-under-fire receiving some bad news in a letter from back home. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 12" x 18". Moderate age-toning, with three conspicuous patches of adhesive staining in opening panel. Very Good condition.
