Astounding, Mysterious, Weird & True

Volume 1 - The Pulp Art of Comic Book Artists















By Steven Brower and Jim Simon. SB Studio Books, New York. 2013. Oversized paperback.  184 pages. B&W illustrations throughout.

These are the artists of the interior B&W artwork from pulps and digest Science Fiction magazines who also worked in comic strip or comic book art. Some are surprising, such as Virgil Finlay (I didn't know he had worked in the comic industry, but he evidently did thousands of frames). Others are also well known; such as Alex Schomburg (Captain America), and Alex Raymond (Flash Gordon). The artwork shown is only pulp art.

I highly recommend this book.
