Astounding, Mysterious, Weird and True: The Pulp Art of Comic Book Artists is the first-ever book about the pen and ink artists who worked in both pulps and comics, and what happened to them. This informative and entertaining volume offers an intriguing look at interior pulp illustrations created by artists who eventually gained greater fame in the world of comic books. Beginning in the 1930s and up through the 1970s, these artists contributed to both pulp magazines and comic books. For some, it was a period when their art first saw publication, for others it was a time when they published their works concurrently in both pop mediums. Eventually, as the popularity of pulps waned and comic books ascended, those artists who could deliver what the comic book audience wanted found steady work drawing for comic books while others transitioned to advertising or prestige magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post or disappeared from the publishing scene altogether. This book provides capsule-format information on the artists, their work, art studios and publishers that fueled the publication of comic books and pulp magazines. The artists on display here reads like a who's who of the comic book world. Filled with many illustrations
