Art Saaf, R.I.P.
Mark Evanier reports on the passing of Art Saaf, a comic book artist whose career stretched from the early 1940s to the late 1970s (with a long gap when he worked in advertising in the middle there). I've only seen a handful of his stories, mostly from his work for DC in the 1970s (where the inking wasn't always complimentary), but liked what I saw. Unfortunately not too much of his older work has been reprinted.
Shown above, from Seduction of the Innocent #5, a 1986 reprint of a 1952 horror story, from Our Fighting Forces #118, a 1969 "Hunter's Hellcats" story pencilled and inked by Saaf and from Supergirl #10, a 1974 story featuring Supergirl meeting Prez, Teen President.
