Okay, so the jaded Frazetta connoisseur has seen every version of evrything by Fritz, but all I'm say'n is that the first image is a scan of the original oils.  Don't turn yer nose up so much, by the way, cause frankly, that big honker is block'n the light

Warfront #37 Contents Page by Wally Wood








 
And dunnae even get me started on what SHOULD have been the cover(last image).  Not sure why the sketch of Wally himself (first image) was made more generic for publication, but later in the comic, there is still some really great self-portraits

Been star'n at this forever, but this image is bigger, better, faster, stronger.  We lost Al Jarreau eight days ago, what an amaz'n voice, and as I've said before, one of my favorite riffs by him was, "Wait a little while and weather what you have to/ give it the time and it will come to you/ as soon as you no longer try you're gonna turn and find it stand'n by your side/ don't forget it/ if you let it/ it'll come to you...."
