Original Art Stories: The Creepy Russ Heath
What Alan did do was turn me onto Heath's Warren work, and, rightly, told me that it was far superior to his DC or Marvel work. I had to agree. I took one look at Heath's Blazing Combat stories and, to be honest, they knocked my socks clear off. The art for the story Give And Take is some of the most photo-realistic and amazing art I've ever seen. I've rarely seen anything so clear and pure - well worth seeking out and buying. As it stands I keep locating Heath in Warren magazines and I've yet to be disappointed, and this story is no exception. Written by Bruce Jones, the art is incredible and the twist, well, have a read and see for yourself. M Knight Shyamalan couldn't get such a simple, and highly effective, twist like this to work on his best day.
Still Russ Heath's original art far outstrips the printed page and any artist today should sit down and study what Russ Heath, and other artists such as Gray Morrow and Alan Weiss, as they'd learn a lot. Count on it.
