Vids I Dig 356: Comic Tropes: Bernard Krigstein: The Most Influential Comic Book Artist

From Comic Tropes’ YouTube description: Bernard Krigstein had a relatively short run in comic books in the 40s through the early 60s but his impact was tremendous. Art scholars and comic book aficionados have studied Krigstein’s work, especially the comics he illustrated at EC Comics in the 50s. He had a philosophy that changed the way artists approached comic book storytelling. In this episode I talk about what comics were like before Krigstein’s work and how his pages changed modern storytelling techniques. This includes a deep dive into his famous story Master Race from Impact #1.
