The Ultimate Fanzine Shadows by Mike Kaluta




 Hey, Russ, ANOTHER Kaluta Shadow!  Now, that's my kind of abbondanza!  And, 48 years earlier, the first Spring issue of Maelstrom had another Kaluta Shadow

Your Convention Schedule This Saturday by Berni Wrightson





The rest of these have been up before.  Interest'n note:  the Wrightson Treasury says this image is in another fanzine, Seraphim 5, but it ain't

Variant Doc Doom by Jack Kirby






I'm pretty amazed what I sometimes miss--I dinnae even know there was a sixth series of the Fantastic Four

Savage Tales #3 Cover by Barry Smith





 ....not!  Oh, well, we can only imagine the paint'n Barry would have done over this

Some Fantastic John Adkins Richardson






 So, in the way-back, I talked about obtain'n Maxor (Fantastic Exploits #21), and put up some awesome sauce from that sweet fanzine.  Just found out that Maxor returned in FE #23, and the first three images are from that.  Unfortunately, only the fourth image (from the original Maxor) embiggens, but both issues had those great transport tubes and walk'n citadels (long before Star Wars!).  Cover to FE 15 has nothing to do with this, although octopus hands morphed to octopus hair in FE 21

Karion Of Atlantis by Jack Kirby

Okay, Jack had more concepts than you could shake a stick at (seriously, where the heck did that phrase come from?), but this one is really intrigu'n to me.  If you know more, please holla

Tales Of The Three Hemispheres Cover by Tim Kirk

Dunnae why this so resonates, but it does.  I know it's just some sub-con "dream" thing, but I've been there, and like they say on eBay when you return to the site, "resume your journey, Cap'n".  My fav Tim Kirk is his Algol May 74 cover (still), but this is right there with it

Happy Mother's Day




Kirby, Golden, Kirby, and Williamson.  Search "mother Williamson" if you havenae seen the son of that last mom
 

When Earth Turned Into A Comet by Neal Adams



 Still (always) riff'n on Neal's work, and I just saw this (in my defense, I was still pretty much a Marvelite only at the time).  Embiggen both, but it's just georgeous

The Shadow Knows by Mike Kaluta



 For once, the advice to "just follow the money" is not such great advice.  Yep, the fundundant blog strikes again, but I love this art so much I wanted to put it up again, and with two versions, we get even more.  The first image has stars, and the second embiggens nicely ( love the street in the background behind the falling crook)

The Beginning Of Animan by Wally Wood







 Yeah, not REALLY the beginning, as Wood was channel'n Animan his entire artistic life (see Animan on here for much more)

Insectons by Jack Kirby






Lotta cosmic awesomesauce came our way with Cap'n Victory, but the two-way tie, for me, was between all the space ships and these guys.  Jack was definitely riff'n on the sweet jazz he played in New Gods 9 and 10, and it bugged me (in a great way)

Batman VS The Joker by Mike Kaluta


 Wow, just saw this, and I dig it

Star Wars Day













 Almost called this May The 4th Be With You, but used that before (and except for a couple, most of these images).  Yeah, it's a day early, but I might be busy manana
