Coupla Dinosaur Splashes by Jack Kirby

These were done when I was four years old, so they were definitely missed, but I can tell you everything Bugs Bunny was up to at the time

DumDum DumDum DumDum by Roy Krenkel and Frank Frazetta

 Six Dums is how the great song by Clarence Quick starts also (okay, there is a "de doody" in between Dums five and six, but still).  Embiggen the fanzine cover for a real treat.  I like to think I maintained my good I. Q. through grade school by always having a roll of Smarties after every Dum Dum lollipop

Maevelmania International Membership Card by Jack Kirby

 "lesser mortals" sounds just like Stan Lee.  It reminds me of his classic "puny humans"

Insolent Human! by Wally Wood

Great Sub-Mariner by Wood, and I just saw it!  It was in Marvelmania Magazine #5, part of the ad for the Super Hero Portfolio (?), then again in a house ad.  Looks like the panel from page fifteen of DD #7, but much better, in my opine
