Some Gothic Blimp Works (Thanks, Russ!)

Mike Kaluta, Spain, Vaughn Bode, Berni Wrightson, and Robert Crumb.  So, besides the amaz'n Mal-ig by George Metzger (last post), Gothic Blimp Works had a slew of other great art in its underground "sunday funnies."  Russ and I were just lament'n that these newsprint publications were long destroyed or selling for a fortune, so I thought I'd see what I could dig up.  Fell in love with Kaluta's Star Child when I saw it for the first time today

Mal-ig by George Metzger

This is right there with his Mu, The Land That Never Was....but Mu has better dialog

Nimue The Enchantress by Barry Smith

So wish Barry could've done, say, the first hundred issues of Conan

The Shadow Of The Abyss by Larry Todd and H P Lovecraft

I've been told that Lovecraft and Robert E Howard where pen-pals, and having read this and a ton of Howard, makes perfect sense
