Tales of the Unexpected No. 10 Cover by Mort Meskin

May 1, 2022|In Comics, DC

A prolific and skilled artist working in comics Golden and Silver ages, Mort Meskin eventually left comics for agency work in illustration and storyboarding.

And it’s a shame that his work has not remained prominent with younger generations of readers as the work of some of his contemporaries has. Here’s a nice example cover dated February 1957.

New colour by me.
