The Wizard of Lemuria by Jeff Jones




Dunnae know why, but I've never seen a decent copy of this PB.  I first encountered it at the Nurnberg PX, rubber-banded together with five other paperbacks in the six for a dollar bin (talk about diss'n a cover)

Creepy #17 Cover by Frank Frazetta


Like we always say at work after a big mistake--"Heads will roll!"  Fritz does a great job of capturing an icon here, medieval vision of da Grim Reaper

Angry Charlie by Jack Kirby

Dig'n those eyes

The Boy Who Loved Trees! by Barry Smith






"Cap'n never puts up complete stories!"  Yeah, and the checks in the mail, it's only a cold sore, and I promise you won't get pregnant

Four Covers by Wally Wood






Second was a cover on the adzine Rocket's Blast Comics Collector, and the last one was never used, but it woulda been a great western paperback cover, ala Steranko

K'ing Kung-Fu #4 by Barry Smith
