Dick Ayers

Holmes and Watson

Dick Ayers is another one of the great silver age artists who worked at Marvel Comics and it's predecessor Atlas Comics.  He is known for his work on the early issues of the "Fantastic Four" as well as a long run on "Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos".

I contacted Mr. Ayers through his website and he did this great rendition of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson for me.  He had originally done this as a pencil drawing for another collector, but when I asked about a Sherlock piece he redrew the piece, added some background and coloured it.
