Collected Jack Kirby Collector #6 Cover

Onea those rare times I dunnae feel the need to say "by so-n-so" in the post title.  The Marvelmania poster of Galactus and The Silver Surfer is here also, cuz many of us like to compare n contrast

The Conan Reader Cover by Berni Wrightson

Maybe the most beautiful of the young Berni's artworks

Conan #16 Cover by Barry Smith

The pencils have been for sale a few times over the years, and the current sales image shown here is better, but I'm guessing I'd need to get rich and hold it in my hands to see it the way I wanna

Steranko: Graphic Narrative

Okay, I always say I'm so broke I cannae pay attention, but shame on me for not knowing about this book!  Just came in at the local shop, but when I asked how much and whistled, they explained it's from 1978 and rare and not in a price guide.  One thing I noticed when flipping through it was a black and white version of the four-page splash from ST 167.  Dunnae have that, but this image from the comics (2 of them, member?) is as big as you wanna.  Everything in GN is black'n white, but I don't recall the third image, just wanted to slap it up

A Sinister Swamp Thing by Berni Wrightson

Berni did a lota variations on The Swamp Thing, but this one must be the most chilling

Clawfang And Conan by Wally Wood

Al Williamson did a fantastic job on the published Clawfang story, but it looks like Woody would've really rocked it, and look whose background he was ready to swipe

New Cover by Frank Frazetta!!!

Yeah, yeah, just new to me.  Actually about the fourth time I've acquired this paperback, but the other versions all had Back To The Stone Age at a weird angle, with the type higher on the left of the cover.  This acquisition is che cool, cause I thought all the covers were screwy from St. Louie

Talking Heads by Gil Kane and Neal Adams and John Fantucchio

Onea the great things about the early fanzines was they didn't worry about being commercially successful.  They could do wild stuff like just the giant head of a hero for the cover
