Train of Thought #5 by Jack Kirby

Here's a paradox (yeah, yer right--that's exactly what the Cap'n of a boat says when you can disembark on either side):  Kirby's Red Skull has never looked so good to me, and I can hardly see him

Ace Of The White Death by Jim Steranko

Deadman Sketch by Neal Adams

The People That Time Forgot by Roy Krenkel and Frank Frazetta

Guess who just found a pristine copy of the original paperback (first image)?  My guess is 1961, but the only date in this entire gem is 1918, the original publication year by Burroughs

The Kubla Khan Portfolio by Frank Frazetta

Not as popular as the Lord of the Rings portfolio he did from the same era, but still great-great

Nostalgia Journal Cover by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott

The cover was black'n white, so if you know who colored this, please clue me in

The Spectacular Spider-man by John Romita

My copy (second image) is bigger, but apparently was once a doggie toy

Daredevil #7 Cover by Wally Wood

Coupla Blackmarks by Gil Kane

Firstest (and bestest?) graphic novel was Blackmark

Tarzan And The Lost Empire by Frank Frazetta

I wanted sump'n special for today's post, and I think Fritz's first paperback is pretty special.  Tonight I reach three quarter of a million views, and all I can say is thankyouthankyouthankyou

It's Here!!!!!! by Jack Kirby

Thank you, John Morrow, for making a Cap'n dream come true!  I've been chomp'n at the bit for months over this, I know (pardon muwah), but here tis, a great mag with a great-great cover.  About twenty years ago, I sent a conglomeration to John in the hopes of getting a free issue (lame, I know, but that's me), and he sent me a very gracious note saying he had never seen the unpublished Big Barda comic book cover, and I was in Kirby Collector heaven, and I have been ever since.  The Jack Kirby Collector re-fanned a flame that felt like it had gone out, and that flame has been burn'n ever since.  As most folks know, that passion led to me starting this blog a little over five years ago (thanks also to Tony Robertson for the blog idear), and I've been having a blast ever since
