Tags: Comic History$17.95
1st printing. By Eddie Zeno. Al Plastino was one of the last surviving penciler/inkers of the Golden Age. Laboring uncredited on Superman for two decades (1948-1968), he co-created Supergirl, Brainiac, and the Legion of Super-Heroes, drawing those characters' first appearances, and illustrating the initial comics story to feature Kryptonite. With a foreword by Paul Levitz, this book was completed just weeks before Al's recent passing. In these pages, the artist remembers both his struggles and triumphs in the world of comics, cartooning and beyond, painting a layered portrait of Plastino's life and career. And a wealth of illustrations show just how influential a figure he is in the history of comics. Softcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 112 pages, B&W. Cover price $17.95.
