Conan King Size #1 Cover by Barry Smith

This Special Issue of Conan, re-print'n the Academy Award issues #2 and #4 of Conan, has my favorite drawing by Barry Smith.  If it had re-printed the covers of those two amaz'n issues, it woulda ascended to some other level status.  This copy is in the best shape since I picked it up at 7-11, so please embiggen and enjoy

Transilvane by Jack Kirby




Isn't this the greatest??  Another amaz'n thing about Jack is his writ'n voice, which makes me wanna tell him to get out of my head

Creepy #9












This mag is a big bowl of amaze-balls smothered in awesome sauce.  We see the cover by Frank Frazetta a lot, but it also has Berni Wrightson's submission to the fan page (so maybe the first published Wrightson?).  Gray Morrow does a beautiful job on the cover story, Wally Wood is the usual wow-wood on Overworked, Steve Ditko has another beautiful ink- washes story in The Spirit of the Thing, and there's even an ok Reed Crandall and Alex Toth story, and my third favorite Loathsome Lore is a beautiful page by Roy Krenkel.  And check out the ads by Fritz!  key word is beautiful
