B. KRIGSTEIN HC - (Greg Sadowski) A gigantic retrospective/biography/critical assessment of one of the most important cartoonists in the history of comics, who went on to become a renowned fine arts teacher in New York. The author had full access to Bernard Krigstein's archives and files and has written a compelling biography of the artist from his childhood in New York to his days as a comics artist from the late 40s to the early 60s, and through his post-comics career as a fine artist, commercial illustrator, and teacher. This book reproduces many of Krigstein's comics stories as well as many of his commercial assignments and his fine art paintings. Most of this work has never been seen outside its original publication. This first of two volumes traces Krigstein's groundbreaking comic book work at Hillman, Atlas, DC, and EC, as well as his parallel development as an illustrator and painter. 240 pp.
