The Forever People by Jack Kirby

Darc Tangent

The bad news is I scanned these two images long ago, dinnae keep the book, and have no artist (looks like maybe ffif?).  The good news is this mag is in almost everyone's back issue magazines, and fairly cheap, so if you like this, you should pick up a copy

Valley Of The Worm by Robert E. Howard

Art-wise, though, it's Bob Kline and Gil Kane

New Paperback by Frank Frazetta!!!

You guessed it-just new to me.  Found this tiny PB in very pristine, and had to post about this again

Incan Visitation by Jack Kirby

My only consolation on the Independence Day scenario is these aliens are obviously try'n to compensate for something

Most Jacobs I know go by Jake, but whatever you call him, this was/is/will always be the bomb

New Dust Jacket by Frank Frazetta!!!

Yeah, yeah, just new to me, and I've already posted a bunch on The Gods of Mars/ The Warlord of Mars, but somebody just traded this in at da bookworm, and it is che nicer than what I had, so I snagged it.  Both versions of this painting are gorgeous, but again I must lament this cartoony first version seems to only be around as the dust jacket.  Love these original colors

Count Dracula by Jack Kirby

Oooohhhh....the royal sash is the color of blood

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face by Jack Kirby

Was just get'n into Kirby when this song title shot up the charts, but, yeah, first is the original unused art for the Hulk Marvelmania poster, then John Morrow's take on it last year, almost fifty after the fact
