Extra!: Art by Reed Crandall

Extra! was one of EC's short-lived New Direction titles. Published in 1955, Extra! featured tales of reporter's adventures as they pursued their stories. While this comic is not at the top of everyone's mind when they think of EC comics, or even the New Direction titles, they all contain some wonderful artwork. A great example is this episode of "Geri Hamilton" with art by Reed Crandall.

Scans are from the 2000 Gemstone comic reprint. Cover of original comic by Johnny Craig at the bottom of this post.

Thanks for showing some Reed Crandall. He's one of my favorites and surely one of comicdom's finest!
