CRAIG, JOHNNY - Extra #3 cover EC 1955

Media Type: Mixed Media
Art Type: Cover
Artists: Johnny Craig All

Johnny Craig - Extra #3 Cover (EC, 1955). The original artwork for this cover was a painting done to look like a half-tone photograph, this full production cover, done on EC art board, is the only existing version of the cover with its cover elements in place. Please note that the half-tone art on this cover has quite a few highlights hand-painted in white (and some in black), which were undoubtedly added in by Craig, thus making this the final version. This piece has an image area of 9" x 13" and is in Excellent condition. Craig, Johnny: Johnny Craig (American, 1926-2001): started his comics career as an art assistant to Shelly Mayer at DC, and later broke in at EC in 1947, working on their crime and Western stories. Craig really came into his own as a triple-threat talent, as an editor-writer-artist for EC's trendsetting horror and crime stories, most notably in the titles the Vault of Horror and Crime SuspenStories. Craig drew the over-the-top Crime SuspenStories #22, the most infamous crime comic cover examined by the outraged Senate committee that helped drive EC out of the comic books and into Mad magazine. After his time at EC, Craig penciled and inked stories for Atlas, ACG, DC, Marvel, and Warren. In the later years of his career EC fans sought Craig out, and for them, he produced a series of meticulous painted commissions based on the EC horror hosts.
