Edd Cartier 1914-2008

ComicMix reports.

Gallery here.

Probably my favorite Golden Age SF illustrator, though I was too young to see his career-best work for Unknown in situ. In Astounding/Analog he often illustrated the Mack Reynolds space operas I greatly enjoyed then but now find unreadable.

R.I.P.

The invaluable and unfortunately named "Golden Age Comic Book Stories" remembers Cartier with some Unknown color covers and some dust jackets from Gnome Press:
