Original Art Stories: DC Comics Meets Edgar Rice Burroughs
These scans, indeed the photographic images, are probably as close as the majority of us will ever get to seeing some of this original art and sketches. And when you consider that the artists featured are Joe Kubert, Alan Weiss, Frank Thorne, Michael Kaluta and Murphy Anderson, well you can fully understand and appreciate the excitement that you get just holding this stuff. I did talk to Alan Weiss about these Pellucidar images a few years back, but the brain has failed me, so I must dig my notes out one fine day.
Until then, enjoy some classic images from some brilliant artists! If you want to know who did what, then merely enlarge the letter and you'll soon discover the identies of the artists - after all I've posted them in the proper order.
I wonder if Marv would reply if I wrote him a letter at that DC Comics address...
