Comic Book Marketplace #28 Cover by Jim Steranko

Unfortunitely, you're look'n at my copy, which is in Cap'n Condition (beat but complete), but what an amaz'n magazine this was.  "Steranko Returns!"  It's been another 25 years, so methinks another publication is due

Tars Tarkas by Bob Kline

If there was an animated John Carter, Bob shoulda/woulda/coulda been the lead

Uncle Creepy by Berni Wrightson

The frostipiece to Creepy #70 seems unique from the other Unks to me.  80 degrees today, so frostys sound great

Tarzan by Jeff Jones

Always amazed what's hiding out there just beyond my ken.  This was probably in an old Burroughs fanzine, but I saw it months ago, and just saw it in my folders again

Death Dealer Book Six (?) by Frank Frazetta

Alice wasnae the only one to get flustered fall'n down a rabbit hole!  When Heritage said the first image was a rough to Book 6, it got me think'n (always a dangerous thing, Gaston).  Back in the day, I only grabbed Book 3 of the paperbacks.  I've always been overly selective.  But I didn't recall very many paperbacks, and now all I can find are four, but then...viola (as Bugs Bunny useta say)! turns out Image had Death Dealer comics with a book 6.  Now if only I could figure out the dichotomy of two roughs for the same painting, and the first rough nothing like the other.  sheeeesh

Orion VS Doc Martin Dyes by Jack Kirby

First is my exaggerated take on the original bright dyes, then the art as it exists now, then the trad'n card (hhhuhh? says Scooby).  Ton already up on here if you search Orion, but lately I'm fascinated by the aging process on these Dr. Martin dyes.  In this particular case, I dig the old, grizzled Orion.  Reminds me of someone I really care about....myself

The First San Diego Comic-Con Program Cover by Jack Kirby

In 1970, the first San Diego convention only saw 300 people, so I doubt the program had a big print run, but this image is big (#embiggen please)

Chicago Tribune Magazine by Frank Frazetta

Dunnae why I dig this stuff so much, but see'n The Berserker on newsprint makes me smile

Art Cooper!!!

Year and a half ago, I wished I could learn Art's last name so I could find him again (first saw his stuff in 1972).  Well, last night I learned his last name.  sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet.......Later that same day:  just added this cover by Tom Artis (see comments-thanks, Chris)
