- Full Description
Kinstler's work hangs in museums, boardrooms, banks, private collections, The White House, and in the homes of his clients and friends. Before portraiture became his life's work, he spent the 1940s and 1950s honing his craft in comic books: Hawkman for DC's The Flash, Black Hood and Black Terror for Standard. And dozens upon dozens of covers, inside cover contents pages, and stories for those delightfully lurid Avon titles like Eerie, Cowpuncher, Dalton Brothers, Jesse James, Strange Worlds, etc. And illustrating for pulp magazines like The Shadow, Doc Savage and Detective Tales!
He also went on to draw Zorro and Max Brand for Dell Comics, Classics Illustrated, the obscure but provocative White Princess of the Jungle, and pulp fiction paperback covers.
He's well known to comic collectors for his brilliant line drawings on the inside front covers of hundreds of Avon's early '50s titles, dozens of which are reproduced here from the original art. He also encountered such notable figures as James Montgomery Flagg, Dean Cornwell, and James Bama. Over 375 illustrations accompany this biography, enlivened by Kinstler's memories and the recollections of friends and editors.
Reproduction throughout is outstanding.
Handsome cloth binding, color dustjacket with a full-page back painting not on the softcover. Also, two special endpaper illustrations, both double-page.
Also available as a deluxe, limited edition hardcover with bonus section of 16 additional pages. See item code EVED.
