- Full Description
Jules Verne's tale of Phileas Fogg and his bet to travel around the world in 80 days. It's always been a favorite story of mine, one of Jules Verne's pure adventure stories rather than science fiction. Kiefer was a stalwart of the Golden Age, although his work here is adequate at best. But he worked for nearly every comics company in his day. Born in 1890, he had already had a long illustration career before comics came along. Includes details about Verne's story and the very popular 1956 film.
From the PulpArtists.com site: "[Kiefer] did not serve in WWII, because he was fifty-three years old as well as a veteran of WWI. In 1947 he began to work for Classics Illustrated Comics. He went on to contribute art to thirty-four different issues of this title, for which he has become most renowned. Kiefer's last published works were in a 1955 crime story comics that appeared from small publisher Trojan, which was edited by his old friend Adolphe Barreaux. Henry C. Kiefer died at home in the Bronx with his wife at the age of sixty-seven on May 10, 1957."
