- Full Description
Russ Heath is one of the finest artists in comic book history. In a career that began more than 70 years ago, he has worked for nearly every publisher. This Artist's Edition Portfolio prints one of Heath's most beautiful and notorious stories, "Yellow Heat!" entirely from the original artwork. Originally published in Vampirella #58 in 1977, "Yellow Heat" has been called Heath's greatest work. It is reproduced here meticulously scanned from the original art, and collected in a hardcover portfolio case.
A very handsome package, with a high quality hardcover slipcase all in maroon, with the loose plates slipped in so that you can remove them, examine each, and even mount them should you choose. It's amazing artwork from one of the giants of our industry.
And the story: it's a twist ending, EC-style, starring a handsome black African tribesman and his violent "coming of age" tale as he must brave a possible death by lion. Heath's drawings of beautiful, topless African women is stunning.
