Conan the Poster by Barry Smith


Loved this image from seeing it in the Tupenny Portfolio and then as a Treasury Edition cover, but this poster is really a beaut!  Besides the wunnerful colors, look how Barry re-did the rain and Conan's hair

Hela by Jack Kirby






Don't know of anything besides Thor #150 and the cover of Thor #251 as far as Jack's illustrating this amaz'n woman (for one thing, that's a Helava costume that was obviously hard to replicate).  I'll be wait'n to exhale (xHela) to see if anyone knows of sump'n sump'n else

Lord Of Blood by Jim Steranko





Three More Paperback Covers by Frank Frazetta





Tales To Astonish #29 Cover by Jack Kirby

I dreamed about this cover when I was five years old (1961).  Noth'n unusual about that, must've seen it in passing, you say, even tho all I read at the time was Bugs Bunny.  Since it was drawn in 1959, this makes a lot of sense, UNTIL... until we note it wasn't published until 1962...hmmm...although the ladders from the saucers are cool, I'm gonna Pasadena on putting up the interior story, as it doesn't hold a candle to this che bomb cover

Master Print of SHIELD #4 by Jim Steranko



Here's a nifty little item Marvel did back in the day--master prints of some of their greatest covers.  This is the only one I got, but it's a beaut.  Still don't know why these three images have three diff faces, but I'm hop'n Steranko experts (Tony?) can help me out with that.  Personally, I still prefer the face on the published cover, even though you might ask , "why the long face?"  Also wonder'n if Steranko drew all three faces, and if there's even more out there

George Clooney by Fank Frazetta

Finally saw Gravity, and it made me think of this vampire thriller (which I never caught) From Dusk Til Dawn
