THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON
ROY G KRENKEL
Roy G. Krenkel (11 July 1918 - 24 February 1983, USA).
After World War II, Roy G. Krenkel took art classes from Burne Hogarth at the Cartoonists' and Illustrators' School. His contributions to the comics field remain limited since he never created a comic on his own. He started out doing comic book art in the 1940s and 1950s, working for companies like ACG, Atlas, Eastern, the legendary EC, Harvey and Warren. In fact, Roy Krenkel specialized in drawing backgrounds. He assisted famous artists such as Frank Frazetta, Al Williamson, Wallace Wood, Joe Orlando and Gil Kane. His credits include Atlas and EC titles like 'Adventures into the Unknown', 'Forbidden World', 'Marvel Tales', 'Weird Fantasy' and so on. Krenkel eventually abandoned his comic activities and devoted himself to illustration, most notably cover illustrations for books by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Otis A. Kline.
