    Description

    Russ Heath - Original 2- Page Splash for Our Army at War #279 (DC, 1975). The dynamic double-page splash story sequences were a distinctive feature of the 1970s DC war books, and Heath originals of them are a wonder. Heath demonstrates a sublime use of scale in his storytelling here, both in the close-ups of the costume details of the opposing army commanders in panels 2 and 3, and in the contrasting extreme long shot selected to fully exploit the drama of the colossal explosion in the "Mined City." Note the use of expressive lighting and textures in that explosion cloud as it blooms within the town. Outstanding! The art paper size is 10.5" x 16" with an image area of 10.25" x 15". The art is in excellent condition. Panel one on the second page is a stat that was resized and positioned over the original art which lies beneath the stat.
