Here’s a lovely pin-up page from the first 1963 title, MYSTERY INCORPORATED, that I’m offering up for sale. It’s a full page shot of CRYSTAL MAN in action, wading through rivers of lava in an exploding volcano. Pencils by me and inks by Dave Gibbons. The two captions, written by Alan Moore, are cleanly pasted up and the piece is in perfect condition. I’d like to get $300 for it.
If you are interested in having this on your wall or as part of your collection just send me an e-mail.
Thirty-two years ago I was in Hy Eisman’s Humor and Cartooning class at the Joe Kubert School. Hy’s a great guy and a fantastic teacher who suggested if I ever did a newspaper strip the perfect title would be “Veitcher’s Creatures”. I never got around to going the syndicated route but I did use the title on one of Hy’s assignments. Can’t say he got the humor, but watching him do a double take was half the fun of his class.
