Description

A beautiful copy of this scarce 1978 original art catalog that was designed and produced by Steranko and Supergraphics. Similar in style & format to Russ Cochran's Graphic Gallery. A 2-page addendum with a Frazetta cover painting is laid in.

A highlight is the long introduction by Steranko discussing comic art, illustration art, and collecting. Steranko also writes the introductions to each section and some of the individual items.

The catalog is divided into three sections: syndicated newspaper art; magazine and book illustrations; and comic art. Reproduces Berni Wrightson and Tim Conrad paintings in color. Artwork by Frazetta (Johnny Comet), Al Capp, Cliff Sterritt, Burne Hogarth, Russell Myers, Russell Patterson, Robert McGinnis , Earl Norem, Ken Barr, Jeff Jones (Iron Man), Howard Chaykin, Jack Davis, Barry Smith, Bill Ward, Neal Adams, Jack Kirby, Robert Crumb, Hal Foster, George Herriman, others. Two pages full of Star Wars comic pages and ten pages for numerous Marvel covers. Many rare images unlikely to be seen again. You will read the prices and weep.
