Tupenny Conan Plate #5 by Barry Smith

Ton of Tupenny Conans up in the wayback on here, but this original art of the "spring snow" is just georgeous, then the plate as I got it when Middle Earth released it in the seventies

The Defender Pencils by Jim Steranko

The cover to Comic Crusader #5 has always felt a little wonky, but Steranko's pencils, as usual, are really che great 

Tarzan VS Tarzan by Neal Adams


Flash Gordon by Steve Ditko

 Last night I saw this splash page on Heritage (thanks, Russ!), and it was so cool to see, because I started the day just doing a search of this post title.  I wanted some more Flash by Ditko to go with the all stars! fanzine cover from 1965 that we been gaz'n at for a while.  Turns out there's nothing (cept an unpublished complete story)  far out

Neanderthals by Frank Frazetta

When I got to CU in 1974, a guy named Spider had this poster on the outside of his dorm-room door.  Weird thing was, Spider had no idea who Frazetta was

Loki by Jack Kirby

Always great to see Loki w/o Coletta inks, but, as I recall, this wasnae even used?  I think I saw this in a Kirby portfolio from Marvel (sucks get'n old....half the time I cannae even find my phone)

Silver Surfer #4 Cover by John Buscema


Back Cover Of Christie's by Frank Frazetta

Frazetta had a few covers on the Christie's East auction catalogs in the way back, but I think Mothman was the only back cover.  I also dunnae think these two go together, but wadda I know?  I only got one catalog, and that one wasnae for the covers, but for a rare Barry Smith that I couln't find anywhere else (I believe you'd search unpublished  Barry Smith on here).
Ooops! Just did the the search myself, and that was a Sotherby's catalog, so I've never had a Christie's East

No Way Back! by Steve Ditko

Way!  Nifty little sci-fi by Ditko, which makes me crave the Flash Gordon unpublished comic even more

Bad Idea by Berni Wrightson

That pistol just does one shot, right?  I dinnae think the Frankenstein creation could be taken down even with better aim'n, anyhow....
