We hear endless praise for greats like Heath, Wolverton, Brodsky, Tuska, Burgos, Baker, etc… and deservedly so. But one name to me seems to continually and unjustly slip through the cracks, and it’s time this error was corrected. Enter: Al Luster, a very unique artist with a slick, dynamic style all his own. His wide range of characters, no matter how dark and diabolical, are just loads of wicked fun. A definitive “Luster” trademark being his villains always tend to have jagged pointy teeth! So here now is the first of 3 stories spotlighting one of my favorite, underrated pre-code artists of the 50’s… (drum roll!) ladies and gentlemen, Al Luster!
