Is there anything so heartbreaking as a good animal story, particularly one told from the animal's point of view? Perhaps such stories touch us because, like innocents, animals are at the mercy of the varying kindnesses and cruelties of men. Today we have a comic book retelling of Anna Sewell's 19th century classic, Black Beauty, via Four Color No. 440, December 1952. The artist for this issue is Morris Gollub.Gollub was one of the greatest cover artists in comic book history, as this painted gem will attest. The inside pages are all Gollub, too - each panel a perfectly composed miniature, wonderful in detail and draftsmanship. - For those that prefer a download: Just Click.
