A beautiful copy of this scarce 1977 original art catalog that was designed and produced by Steranko and Supergraphics. Similar in style & format to Russ Cochran's Graphic Gallery.
A highlight is the long introduction by Steranko discussing comic art, illustration art, and collecting. Steranko also writes the introductions to each section.
The catalog is divided into three sections: magazine and book illustration; comic strip art; and comic book art. Reproduces Barry Smith and Robert McGinnis paintings in color. Artwork by Winsor McCay, John Held Jr, Frank Godwin, James M. Flagg, Dean Cornwell, Mead Schaeffer, Jeff Jones, Jack Davis, Steve Ditko, Kirby Peter Driben, Robert Crumb, Hal Foster, Milt Gross, George Herriman, others. Many rare images unlikely to be seen again. You will read the prices and weep. This first issue is the scarcest of the three issued.
