Dynamo v1 #1 tower 1960s silver age comic book cover art by Wally Wood
Wally Wood
Dynamo v1 #1, 1966 - One of the most popular members of T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents, the character had this short-lived series during the silver age. In addition to the compelling cover design, Wally Wood illustrates three interior stories. The first appears to be primarily Wood with the aid of assistants and the second is his inks over Reed Crandall's pencils. Both are adequate, with full page opening splashes to compensate for an abundance of panels on subsequent pages. The third, pencilled by Steve Ditko, is slightly better and certainly the most interesting. The opening scene feels more film noir than superhero fiction. This is number 1 of 4 Dynamo issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 Dynamo issues with Ditko art and/or covers.

Walt Disney's Darby O' Gill and the Little People / Four Color Comics v2 #1024, 1959 - This Walt Disney comic adaptation coincides with the film's release. Starring Sean Connery and Janet Munro, an old Irishman named encounters and befriends the King of the Leprechauns, but not without some dangerous risks. Drawn in his typically loose newspaper strip style, Alex Toth recreates the warmth and relative peacefulness of the Irish countryside (especially the opening scene). The artist makes little attempt to match the likenesses of the more famous actors. Still, Toth's storytelling skills are supreme, even within the limitations of Dell Publishing's grid format. In addition to the photo cover, there are movie stills in the inside front cover and a pin-up poster of Janet Munro on the back. This story was later reprinted in Darby O' Gill and the Little People #10251-001. This is number 1 of 1 Darby O' Gill issues with Toth art and/or covers.

Cadet Gray of West Point v1 #1 / Dell Giant, 1958 - This perfect-bound, one-shot issue chronicles the life of a young cadet. His experiences at the military academy are interspersed with tales of America's historic battles. A different artist contributes to each segment. Al Williamson's depiction of Captain John Paul Jones O' Brien at Buena Vista is the most noteworthy. Despite being less dynamic than his western and science fiction works, his art has the appropriate feel of a documentary. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema and Joe Sinnott. This is number 1 of 1 Cadet Gray of West Point issues with Williamson art and/or covers.

Fighting Yank v1 #28, 1949 - One of Al Williamson's earliest works, he contributes only a single page in this golden age issue. The Fighting Yank, a super-hero costumed as a colonial patriot, is featured in several stories throughout the book. Among the less prominent pages is the "Fighting Yank's Notebook", which make futuristic predictions on fashion and communications. Al Williamson draws four separate panels, none of which particularly distinctive or engaging. In fact, this early effort may have been overlooked if not for his signature in upper right hand panel. This is number 1 of 1 Fighting Yank issues with Williamson art and/or covers.

Lost Worlds v1 #6 standard 1950s science fiction comic book cover art by Alex Toth
Alex Toth
Lost Worlds v1 #6, 1952 - Despite the gigantic, intelligible ants on this Alex Toth cover, no such story appears inside. Compared to other artists, Toth covers were few and far between during the golden age. This well composed example captures the shock and pandemonium of an alien invasion on Earth. Toth's inside story is less impressive, with its confining panels and sequences bordering on monotonous. The first few pages are especially staid in depicting an interstellar battle between spaceships. Other artists in this issue include John Celardo, Ross Andru, Art Saaf and Rocco Mastroserio. This is number 2 of 2 Lost Worlds issues with Toth art and/or covers.
