Warren Kremer

For some reason, I'm still amazed whenever I see an artist's drawings of something other than what he's identified with. Warren Kremer is best known for drawing Richie Rich, Casper and Stumbo for Harvey Comics. These are originals of work he did outside of that genre.

  1. Ted: What lovely, stunning stuff. As Ernie Colon said of his pal, "He (Kremer) was a master of comic book art." I have neve seen any of this stuff. I like the last page - Little Max - the best. What brushwork. Thanks!

  2. I agree, Mykal. There was magic in his brush.

  3. I own a Little Max "Rhymes With Reason" two-pager. Not as nice as the one above, but still pretty good. Check it out here:

  4. Just discovered Warren Kremer at Pappy's blog. These posted images of Kremer's original artwork are beautiful, the Black Cat and Little Max pages especially! Thanks for sharing these images.
