Buster Crabbe #5 by Al Williamson, Frank Frazetta, and Roy Krenkel

Looks like all Fritz on the cover, all Al on the unused cover, and all three fleagles on the Maid of Mars.  Georgeous stuff, and seventy sump'n years ago

Nick Fury by Jim Steranko

Tons a Nick Fury on here, but this one's new to me.  Always dig when Steranko tells a story in one picture, and the little figures hark me back to Superman 400

Warrior Fanzine Cover by Barry Smith

 Have you ever waited for sump'n so long, you forget you're wait'n for sump'n?  I first saw a tiny image of this cover in the wayback, and while ago saw this clearly (second image) in the not-so-wayback, but now, it's up on eBay (first image).  suhweet

First DC Berni Wrightson

 What is my malfunction, Major?  I claim to be a huge fan of Wrightson, and I never saw this, and besides being real nice, it's an important historical milestone.  You know the drill!  "So broke, I can't even pay attention"

Wall-To-Wall Wally Wood

Here Comes The Lost Worlds Of George Metzger!

Are you as pumped about this as I am?  320 pages of Metzger!  Hooo, boy!  Guess it will have the big 3Ms (Mu, Mal-ig, and Moondog) and his incredible Time And Again, but I'm reeling to think of all the pages I haven't seen
