- Full Description
Handsome Limited Edition with an exclusive gold-embosssed leatherette cover, AND slipcase, AND matching full box, both with onlaid color covers. Plus a portfolio of extras: 16 collectible post cards, a temporary tattoo sheet and a print of Sunny #11 revisted, a Feldstein re-creation from 2002. Covers and complete stories long considered to be prime examples of late 1940s "headlight" and "Good Girl" art comics.
Issues of Junior and Sunny are surprisingly scarce and very desirable amongst collectors. Created, written, and illustrated by the legendary E.C. Comics artist/writer/editor Al Feldstein for the notorious Victor Fox of Fox Feature Publications, this collects the full run of these comics, along with a historical introduction by Grant Geissman.
Although the stories are basically charming, "typical teenage" period pieces, Feldstein's artwork often pushes the envelope for the time, with titillating covers and often-suggestive images in the stories themselves. It's probably a good thing that Dr. Fredric Wertham never found out about Junior and Sunny! Seduction of the innocent, indeed!
Grant Geissman's last book was The Art of Al Feldstein, and this is the perfect companion as it reveals this scarce pre-EC Comics work. Grant's many books on Mad, EC and EC artists always stand out as among the best in the field.
Note: Some copies may have a slight waviness to the onlaid pasted-down cover on the slipcase (which is inside the box), as well as very slight scuffing to the cover and very minor dents to the box cover.
