History of Al Feldstein in Comic Book Art

Al Feldstein began working in the comic book industry in high school after taking a job with S. M. Iger Studio. It was there, working as a gofer, that Feldstein learned the ins and outs of the industry.

Feldstein started out packaging comics, running errands and erasing pages but eventually moved on to be an inker for the company, then a penciller.

His earliest published work was background art for the series, Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. After graduating high school, Feldstein enrolled in the Art Students League and while there he began freelancing for various publishers like Fox Comics. However, Feldstein left the company due to poor treatment and payment issues.

In 1948, he took a job with EC Comics as an artist but quickly began contributing as a writer as well. By the early 1950's Feldstein was also the editor of many of EC Comics' titles, in addition to his writing and artistic duties.

As time went on he focused more on writing and editing and saved his artwork primarily for the title's covers. As the editor of EC, Feldstein moved the publisher into a new direction, creating a literate line that featured much more adult content and themes.

Stories that dealt with racial prejudice, domestic violence, rape, drug addiction, child abuse, and police brutality and other motifs that explored the darker side of American life.

Feldstein was also instrumental in bringing up a new generation of writers and artists, hiring on the likes of Robert Robert Bernstein, Otto Binder, Daniel Keyes, Jack Oleck and Carl Wessler and Harlan Ellison. He also asked that they maintain their distinct individual aesthetics as artists to give the line a different look amongst competitors of the time.

During the 1950s, under Feldstein's New Trend group, the publisher put out titles such as Weird Science, Weird Fantasy, Tales from the Crypt, The Haunt of Fear, The Vault of Horror, Shock SuspenStories, Crime SuspenStories, Panic and Piracy.

The New Trends titles eventually folded in 1955 due to censorship pressure from the government and fellow industry players as a result of the dark nature of their content.

Following the termination of his EC Comics line, Feldstein began working for MAD Magazine, where he worked for the next 29 years and the remainder of his professional career. Mad Magazine became one of the most influential and popular magazines in the United States during Feldstein's tenure there. He retired in 1985.
