9781606995808: Messages in a Bottle: Comic Book Stories by B. Krigstein

This compilation of “cartoonist’s cartoonist” Bernard Krigstein’s comics for EC and many other publishers spans many genres.

Bernard Krigstein began his career as an unremarkable journeyman cartoonist during the 1940s and finished it as a respected fine artist and illustrator ― but comics historians know him for his explosively creative 1950s, during which he applied all the craft, intelligence and ambition of a burgeoning “serious” artist to his comics work, with results that remain stunning to this day. Krigstein’s legend rests mostly on the 30 or so stories he created for the EC Comics, but dozens of stories drawn for other, lesser publishers such as Rae Herman, Hillman, and Atlas (which would become Marvel) showcase his skills and radical reinterpretation of the comics page, in particular his groundbreaking slicing and dicing of time lapses through a series of narrow, nearly animated panels. Greg Sadowski, who has previously written and designed a Harvey Award-winning biography of Krigstein, has assembled the very best of Krigstein’s comics work, starting with his earliest creative rumblings, through his glory days at EC, to his final, even more brilliantly radical stories for Atlas Comics ― running through every genre popular at the time, be it horror, science fiction, war, western, or romance (but no super-heroes). Legendary EC colorist Marie Severin, in her last major assignment before her retirement, has recolored 15 stories for this edition. The remainder has been taken from printed comics, digitally restored with subtlety and restraint. This edition reprints the out-of-print 2004 hardcover B. Krigstein Comics, with a number of stories re-tooled and improved in terms of reproduction, and several new stories added. It also contains an extensive set of historical and editorial notes by editor Greg Sadowski. Page stats from Krigstein’s personal archives and a comic book checklist of the artist’s entire body of work round out this substantial volume. Yes

About the Author:

Bernard (B.) Krigstein (1919–1990) was trained as a classical painter, but early on he recognized the artistic potential of the comics medium. He was inducted into the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2003.

Greg Sadowski is a writer, editor and designer (B. Krigstein, Supermen!, Four Color Fear, Setting the Standard: Alex Toth; Action! Mystery! Thrills!) living in Washington State.

From Booklist:

Toiling unnoticed in comic books in the late 1940s and ’50s, Krigstein is now recognized as one of the field’s most sophisticated and innovative artists. Although he’s best known for his stories for the legendary EC Comics—8 of which are included here—Krigstein also produced remarkable work for many other publishers, in genres ranging from crime and horror to war and westerns. Although Krigstein was a masterful illustrator (he later abandoned comics for commercial art and canvas painting), capable of varying his style to suit the demands of the story, his genius lay in how he broke down the scripts, using multiple, subdivided panels to audaciously manipulate time. These 41 restored and recolored stories (most of which appeared in the out-of-print B. Krigstein: Comics, 2004) show off his brilliance far better than the cheaply printed comic books where they were first published. Krigstein’s thoughtful, intelligent approach to telling a story should be an eye-opener to readers of today’s mainstream comic books, which increasingly rely on huge panels filled with vacuous excitement and overblown rendering. --Gordon Flagg

Descripción Fantagraphics, 2013. Estado de conservación: New. Bernie Krigstein (1919-1990) is one of the most acclaimed artists in the history of American comics, lauded for his dramatic compositions and fiercely intelligent storytelling, despite leaving the field after only a decade. Here Krigstein's biographer Greg Sadowski assembles the very best of his stories, including his landmark crime and horror strips for EC Comics and work for Stan Lee's Atlas Comics, together with some of his original art, and provides historical and editorial notes - and there's not a superhero in sight.
