We offer here a very unusual catalogue featuring the B&W illustration of modern master Jim Steranko, created for an exhibition given at The Winnipeg Art Gallery, during 1977. After an introduction, we are given over to a narration by authors and exhibition curators Philip Fry & Ted Poulos. They present a detailed thesis about Jim Steranko's astonishing artistry, which is highlighted by numerous examples of his Comic book art, much of it coming from Marvel Comics, where he produced many fine strips.

These include Captain America, Tower Of Shadows & The Avengers. It is for his Nick Fury stories, in his own title & on Strange Tales that Steranko is probably best known. After assisting the mighty Jack 'King' Kirby, he eventually took over the strip & made the character his own. The majority of illustrations are from Fury & they show Steranko's art in full flow.

This is your chance to acquire this seldom offered item in very presentable condition. Recommended. A VERY rare book. 1st print, in mint condition.
