This is a Rusty Riley Sunday page by Frank Godwin, from October 12, 1958. The original is huge, 16" x 23", on thick paper. I acquired it to bliss out on Frank Godwin's inking technique, since the staging is rather pedestrian. I'm especially enthralled by the third panel because of the ink work on the man's arm as he stands, back to camera, hands in pockets. Godwin HAD to be working from photographs. I find it interesting to compare Godwin to Al Williamson, another photo-swiper. I generally prefer artists who draw more from their imagination, but I like both Godwin and Williamson, mostly for their inking technique, less for their staging which tends to be rather dull.
