Coupla Great Ads by Barry Smith

Aaaand what they were advertis'n

Icarus by Barry Smith

I know what you're think'n "if you've seen one punk fly too close to the Sun with wings made of paraffin and feathers, you've seen them all"  well--show some compassion for passion.  Speaking of passion, does anyone recall Icky Woods from the Cincinnati Bengals?  Amaz'n running back with the great celebratory dance The Icky Shuffle

The Red Raven by Jacob Kurtzberg

Ahright,ahright, ahright--I mean Jack Kirby!  But it's so different, in some ways (to me) even greater than the heights of Marveldom or even (gasp) The Fourth World.  I first saw this in 1969, in some obscure fanzine, and I had NO IDEA that it was Kirby, I just knew it was amaz'n, and I remember falling asleep with the radio on all night after the day I first saw it, and I had an incredible dream of a world in the far future or dim past (same diff, neh?) where much of the earth was underwater, except for thousands of high-turreted castles, and the scene on this cover was occurring non-stop

X-Men Companion by Michael Golden

Man, I love this picture, but do NOT use the coupon!  I'm guess'n they sold out about thirty years ago

Sword of the Atom by Gil Kane

It was 1983, and you got super-divorce,a plane crash, a lost civilization, and did you say let's save the rain-forest?  Man, this was all that AND a pack of smokes
