Sadowski on Krigstein

Author of comprehensive bio speaks

NEWSARAMA interviews Greg Sadowski about his work on the epic Fantagraphics bio of Bernie Krigstein, the influential comics artist best known for his work at EC, including the short story MASTER RACE.

Sadowski says, "Krigstein always felt resentment towards Feldstein. Even as great EC Comics was he still had a lot of problems. Sometimes when the artists received their boards to do the art the lettering was already there and they had to work around it. A lot of artists liked working that way because they didn't have to think about. But if Feldstein gave him one panel, Krigstein would break it down into three to get more movement going. The main thing he wanted was more pages. He wanted to take a five-page story and do it in fifteen pages."
