Topps Cadillacs And Dinosaurs, MAN-EATER! , Part 2 pages 8 and 9 St. Aubin/Nunis
Topps Cadillacs And Dinosaurs, MAN-EATER! Part 2 pages 8 and 9 Claude St. Created by Mark Schultz, Story by Roy Thomas. Part Two, "Let Us Prey". Panel pages are where the story is told. Aubin's pencils tell more than one story. As the governors are meeting at dawn to resume the hunt for a killer Shivat.
Page 8 tells the story of Ryder Corbett's relationship with Governor Scharnhorst and reveals that she has access to arcane knowledge like prosthetics. Jack "Cadillac" Tenrec, "Old Blood" mechanic, is feeling confrontational (a girl was half-eaten after the monster was lost). Wassoon ambassador, Hannah Dundee, restrains him.
Great character portraits here including Governor Dahlgren and a powerful and scheming Governor Scharnhorst, as Page 9 lays bare some of the political machinations and alliances that affect the hunt and the council. Clean pages with minor whiteout corrections.
This is original comic art physically drawn and inked. Please note, that as comic art pages were created in the production of a periodical magazine, a collaborative effort was necessary to take any page from conception to publication. It's often unappreciated that they were not static pieces of art, but changing process documents in service to the larger goal. Sometimes the artists' choices created an impermanence.
Pages were drawn with or on materials that faded or darkened over time. Small or elaborate collages utilized fragile cutouts from other periodical media with adhesives that don't hold up over time. Previously-drawn images were copied onto different quality materials and re-used in manual paste-ups by the artist. There were intentional procedural changes, as when corners were removed at the image shoot. Pages were marked up, annotated during editorial, and manually corrected, sometimes with an exacto knife and tape.
They also may have been glued, stamped, hole-punched, pinned up, or otherwise manipulated. At other times, the changes were unintentional as when chemicals in the printing process spilled on the page or tape stains were left on the borders.
As more of the creative and publication practice moves fully into the digital world, not only will this kind of standalone physical art disappear, but these valuable artifacts will as well. And that is all the reason to love them more.
