Dreamy Splash Pages Pt. 1
The Prize Comics series Strange World of Your Dreams was the perfect fit Jack Kirby, Mort Meskin and Bill Draut. The them of the series allowed these artists to stretch their collective imaginations to the limit. Starting with Windsor Mackay's Little Nemo, it was clear that dreams made for wonderful comic book fodder. This short-lived series starred Richard Temple, some sort of doctor/therapist who helped people analyze their dreams. This particular tale involves a deceased mother communicating with the living through their dreams in order to assist her sick child. It's pretty creepy and very atmospheric. All of the feature stories in this series have amazing splash pages by the aforementioned artists. This was the first one in issue #1, and they certainly started with a bang. I'll feature a few more of these over the next week or so.
