Reach For The Stars
Friday Comic Book Day.
One of the visitors mentioned the Tom Corbett comic strip. There were two in the fifties, in fact. One, rather dull, published by Dell and a very good one by Prize later in the fifties. The Prize version was drawn by Mort Meskin, who did some of his career's best work for this three issue totle. I hav already shown the three stories from nuer 1 and as I haven't got number 2, I will immediately skip to the third and last issue. Accomanied by a great cover, showing Meskin's elegant mastery of his art (as did all his Prize covers at that time). He went on to work for DC, where his style was not appreciated, probably because he didn't confirm to the house style enough and couldn't be inked that way. But still, what an artist.
