Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alex Schomburg (May 10, 1905, Puerto Rico - April 7, 1998) was a prolific American commercial and comic book artist and painter whose career lasted over 70 years. Alex Schomburg was born on May 10, 1905 in Puerto Rico, and moved to New York City in the early 1920s, where he began work as a commercial artist with three of his brothers. In 1928, the brothers' partnership ended and Schomburg found work with the National Screen Service, creating lantern slides and working on movie trailers there through 1944. During the 1930s, in addition to working for the NSS, Schomburg freelanced Better Publications, producing interior line art for Thrilling Wonder Stories and other of the company's pulp magazines. His skill at drawing anything mechanical soon had him illustrating aviation covers for Flying Aces and electronic equipment for the Hugo Gernsback pulp Radio Craft. Schomburg's first science fiction-themed cover was for the September 1939 issue of Startling Stories.show more
