Fantastic Four #33 Cover by Jack Kirby




Just started mow'n the back forty today, but the dream is to show you all three versions I possess of this great comic when I have more energy

A Tupenney Conan That Slipped The Hook by Barry Smith

One that got away, that is.  There were at least three such

Kree-Gah! by Frank Frazetta

Have I mentioned lately how much I'm saddened by Fritz paint'n over this?  Well, I am

Back Cover Lover by Jeff Jones

While it may not have the chutzpah of Back Door Lover by Led zeppelin, this is by far the best back cover to me (okay, Gosh Wow #2 is pretty darn close, as Wally Wood did a primo Dynamo on that)

Crypto Man by Jack Kirby

This.  just.  rocks

Paradox by Wally Wood

Speak'n of which---we were recently on a ferry boat, and when we reached land, we could disembark from either side

Tony Stark by Jack Kirby

I know The Nuetralizer is blow'n us away visually in this scene, but I cannae help being more amazed by Stark's circuit-laced jumpsuit, magic wand, and spiffy anti-grav helmet

Gargoyle Every Night by Berni Wrightson










Coupla blogs have this story up from a re-print, but some folks (not nam'n snooty names) will prob'ly enjoy the original printing
