Before Genius

Friday Comic Book Day.

Before and after he worked at EC (doing stories that made him an immortal superstar of graphic storytelling), Bernie Krigstein worked at Timely under Stan Lee. Most of his work for this company is not as good as the stuff he did for Bill Gaines and Al Feldstein, but flashes of the same genius shine through. I am slowly gathering a collection of all his Timely work (starting years ago with my own scans and slowly filing the gaps with 'borrowed' scans since then) and I wil offer these on one or two discs when I am ready. Here is a sample of a recent find, showing Krigsteins Caniff influences.
