Halloween by Berni Wrightson

Remember to always get out of the circle Before summoning---the warning's right there on the candle box

Cap'n America/ Conan by Jim Steranko

This iconic pose had already been used by Frazetta, but Steranko made a NEW version, which I find che cool

Big Barda (?) by Jack Kirby

Dunnae know if this was meant to be Big Barda, but it sure LOOKS like her (shades of Roz)

Pa! Ma! by Rich Corben

At one point Warren publishing decided to add color to their black'n white mags, but I really don't agree that more is more.  That being said, Gore's art is amaz'n here (dig me some Corben rocks), and I slapped up the Frazetta cover to this ish (for a better look at the cover, search Luana on here).  I think I say it too much, but embiggen and enjoy

Stardate Sci-Fi Gaming Vol 3 #6 Cover by Frank Frazetta

Here's an oddity....this version of Death Dealer was on the cover of a trekkie (???) oriented gaming magazine from 1987

Weird Worlds #6 Cover by Mike Kaluta

Onea those covers that makes me break into the Oh Yeah song from Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Iron Man Sketch by Jack Kirby

Oh my heck!  This con sketch is up for grabs on Ebay(ends this weekend, so hurry), and it is just my cupa---a detailed sketch by Jack at the height of his power, and I've never seen it.  Grooooovy

Andor by Wally Wood

Personally, I like this pin-up better before it got published (Dynamo #2).  Andor is the most compelling character in the whole Tower cannon, and seems to have a little Animan swagger, but besides a great character (plot is just footprints in the sand left by great characters, Ray Bradbury once said), we got to see a lot of Ditko/ Wood collaboration, which is always che cool

Silver Surfer Graphic Novel Cover by Jack Kirby

Conan Of Cimmeria by Frank Frazetta

Still my Fritz fav, kinda tied four ways with The Eternal Champion and the original paperback versions of Kavin's World and Conan The Buccaneer

Barbaric Battle Sketch by Berni Wrightson

Always enjoy see'n something from Berni I've never seen before

Galaxy Green by Jack Kirby

Although Corben and Bode and Rand did some great stuff in the undergrounds, I kinda dig that Kirby never really got into that scene

The Creeper Fights by Steve Ditko

Just one of the scuffles in Beware The Creeper #4.  Think I luvitsomuch cause it embodies the character so perfectly in only a two-page spread, so right-on, so far-out, so 1968

The Flame Horse by Gil Kane

Would love to see anything else on this amaz'n unused concept.  Please embiggen

Snake! by Bob Kline

Master Of Adventure by Frank Frazetta

Still think it's too bad Fritz painted over this un, a great-great Tarzan

Heimdall Meets The Recorder by Jack Kirby

My fav view of Asgard

Spiderman by Jim Steranko

Kull Trio by John Severin

'Tis My Son by Jack Kirby

Another example of Thor without Vinnie

Shade And Strange by Steve Ditko

Makes me wish I had Static handy (Steve seems to prefer names that start with S).  Two great fanzine illos.  I really want to catch the Doctor Strange movie

Nucleus #8 Fanzine Cover by Berni Wrightson

This rejected Kull cover has been up before, but this is a tad sharper

Purple Sandman by Jack Kirby

I think I dig best the more common cover, but this is still interest'n

Barbarians In Space by Jim Steranko

Dunnae what this is really called, but I call it this because I first saw it in the great fanzine Comic Crusader #12 ("The Barbaric Issue") back in 1972 (second image).  First is the original, and last is a revised version,  all great-great
