An Ad For The Shadow by Mike Kaluta

 As Russ said in the wayback, after Kaluta had his short run on the first few issues of The Shadow comic, that's when he REALLY started illustrat'n The Shadow

Bran Mak Morn by Gene Day

This cover of a Robert E. Howard fanzine (REH Two-Gun Raconteur) was all that and a bag of chips.  I'll say it again, we lost Gene way too young

The Frost Giant's Daughter by Frank Frazetta

 The fundundant blog strikes again!  Even these next words are repetitive:  I saw this on a buddy's table at a monthly get together the comic folk of the Springs had in the basement of the CS PD.  He had Conan of Cimmeria marked a buck (guess cause it was new at the time) and I grabbed it up and just stared at it for days

Another Sword Of The Atom by Gil Kane

Search the wayback (and the other day) for a bunch more on here.  Still cannae believe that this failed based on sales back in the day.  Personally, I thought Jan Strand and Gil Kane was an amaz'n team

Some More Sci-Fi illos by Wally Wood

 Groov'n on those Worlds of If, Galaxy, and Amaz'n mags lately

Spacey Trio by Wally Wood

The other two up a bunch on here, but I am almost positive (which for me is equivalent to 100%) that I've never posted that first one, a 1957 illo from Dude magazine.  Best I can comprehend it is Dude was a poor man's Playboy

Somea 1977's Fanzine Art Show #1

Another great fanzine/adzine that I completely missed (I blame college, again).  I particularly love see'n a piece by Dennis Fujitake

The Atom, Well In Hand With Gil Kane

Onea the great run'n concepts in comics (to me, anyways ), and I'd love to see others
