- Full Description
Remember the days of fabulous, high quality fanzines like Squa Tront, filled with fascinating new information about EC artists, and never-before-seen artwork. Well, look no more, long-time fan Roger Hill brings it all back: new information about Max Gaines' death, amazing details about the unsung Sid Check and his work with Frazetta and others, Roy Krenkel memoirs by Angelo Torres and Al Williamson!
This issue debuts with front and back full color covers by Roy Krenkel, the front an unpublished Warren magazine cover, the back from the original artwork for At the Earth's Core from 1962, just unearthed after being lost for 50 years.
72 pages of detailed, informative articles about the greatest comic publishing company that ever lived and its creators. And lots of never-before-published artwork, from the Sid Check archives that was just discovered in a storage locker, revealing exactly how much was his and how much Frazetta and other artists in his sporadic and often brilliant 1950s pre-code artwork, including his EC stories.
If Max Gaines had not died in a boating accident. Bill Gaines might never have taken over the company and created the lengendary EC and Mad...finally, here is the inside story from the boy who was on the boat with Max and his own Dad, when they were rammed by a speedboat.
Frazetta at Fiction House--yes, never before details (and rejected artwork) when he started his career hanging with George Evans and copying Milton Caniff's style! I sure never knew he worked at Fiction House! And his tryout was a Space Rangers story, that was eventually redrawn by Bob Lubbers but using Frank's layouts! Really! For hardcore EC and artist fans, it doesn't get better than this! Privately printed by Roger (a long time friend and fellow contributor to Jerry Weist and his beloved Squa Tront). Limited availability outside of us. Both back issues still available.
