BOB KESSEL AMERICAN ARTIST Action 1

CONTACT

Superman first appeared in 1938 in Action Comics #1 and quickly became one of America’s enduring icons, promoting the war effort in the second World War and acting as a role model to an entire generation.

Bob Kessel has made an homage to that comic book cover with his print edition titled “ACTION #1” printed with baked enamel paints with black line embossing on white aluminum. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist on the reverse side.

Preparing to print red color plate at Axelle Editions NYC. Yes, I said red, but it looks blue. The red ink has yet to be applied in this photo. The blue is the chemical masking agent used in silk screen printing. 


The inspiration for GODHEAD print is the space god Galactus, created by Jack Kirby back in the 1960’s. The red and blue colors are a throw back to 3D comics. I did not make it exactly like 3D comics, because it hurts the eyes to look at it without 3D glasses. But those of you that have seen those old 3D comics will get the reference.
