Uncle Gideon's Gold Louis Ravielli-1953

Over a year ago, we posted a unique story by artist Louis Ravielli, an artist with whom I had previously been unfamiliar. Been meaning to find another, more typical one, ever since. And here we go. That splash, the detail throughout! This guy was worth more than page rates, that's for sure! A shame that's probably all he ever got in comics.

He's certainly very talented, but he didn't have as distinct a style as the other house artists at Atlas at the time, and didn't do that many stories. I think if he would have stuck with it he would have developed that. There's a bit of Crandall in some of his work.

I've been looking at some of his work for other companies since I posted this. He's very inconsistent. There's always a good panel or three but much of his work looks hacked out I'm sorry to say. You're right about the Crandall influence and he, too, was too good for the industry.
