Strange Terrors #3 - Joe Kubert art

Strange Terrors v1 #3, 1952 - While better known for his work on war comics, Joe Kubert draws a truly horrific tale in this issue. A shy clerk paints a satanic painting that eventually relinquishes his soul to the devil. The agony and anxiety on the characters' faces are conveyed masterfully. The title panel uses an impressionistic, ominous background to full effect. Aside from a woman's mis-proportioned face on page two, Kubert's skillfulness is obvious. This is number 1 of 4 Strange Terrors issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Strange Terrors issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
