Race for the Moon v1 #3, 1958 - Like previous issue, the combination of Jack Kirby's pencils and Al Williamson's inks far exceed expectations. Some comic guides credit the cover to both artists, but it seems more likely inked by Joe Simon. Inside, four stores are magnificently rendered due to Kirby's kinetic style and Williamson's sensitive finishes. "Space Garbage", with its dramatic lighting and sublime textures, is a standout among them. This is number 3 of 3 Race for the Moon issues with Kirby art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Race for the Moon issues with Williamson and/or covers.

Marvel Classics Comics v1 #1, 1976 - Marvel continues the tradition of& Classics Illustrated with their own adaptations of novels. The first twelve issues or so are reprinted from Pendulum Classics, a small format paperback series with black and white interiors. Subsequently, the panels and text appear larger than usual, benefiting the artwork as a whole. This premiere issue by Nestor Redondo is one of the finest of the series. His excellent drawings span nearly fifty pages. Two exceptional splashes depict the transformation of man to monster (pages 1 and 27). Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane (cover). This is number 1 of 2 Marvel Classics Comics issues with Redondo art and/or covers.

Time Warp v1 #2, 1980 - In Steve Ditko's tale, a futuristic astronaut seeks to journey to the farthest reaches of space against the wishes of his wife. The artist's inventive shapes and textures nicely contribute to the plot's otherworldly feel. Don Newton draws a story of a woman with an incurable aging disease. Unfortunately, his pencils are largely diminished by the rigid inks of Dave Simons. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane, Howard Chaykin, Romeo Tanghal, John Celardo, Tom Sutton, Jerry Grandenetti and Michael Kaluta (cover). This is number 2 of 4 Time Warp issues with Ditko art and/or covers and number 2 of 5 Time Warp issues with Newton art and/or covers.

Green Lantern / Green Arrow v2 #76, 1970: In what seemed radical at the time, two established superheroes delve into the social issues of the era. Writer Denny O' Neill and artist Neal Adams begin their historic run, bringing social relevance to comics. The provocative cover employs a monochromatic color palette, uncommon for the time but nicely reinforces the lead characters. Inside, Adams' artwork is exquisite, particularly in his renditions of ordinary people. Green Lantern's encounter with an elderly African-American man (page 6) is especially poignant and masterfully drawn. Not surprisingly, this issue won a bevy of industry awards and accolades. This story was later reprinted in Green Lantern Green Arrow #1. This is number 2 of 15 Green Lantern issues with Adams art and/or covers.

Texas Rangers in Action v1 #77, 1970 - A ranger is ambushed from behind, leaving a small village at the mercy of Mexican bandits. Steve Ditko's bronze age linear style may not be the most suitable for the western genre, but it is entertaining nonetheless. His compositions for the opening splash and various panels remain graphically arresting. Note that this image was re-used and cropped for the cover. This story was later reprinted in Gunfighters #84. Other artists in this issue include Nicholas Alascia. This is number 2 of 2 Texas Rangers in Action issues with Ditko art and/or covers.

Red Sonja v3 #3, 1983 - As invaders lay siege on the walled city of Alwazar, Red Sonja allies herself with its defenders. For a second time, Nestor Redondo provide the inks for Mary Wilshire's pencils/layouts, with splendid results. Most impressive is the two-page panoramic spread of the city (pages 2-3). Redondo's detailed landscape adds grandeur and scale, setting the story's tone from the beginning. Curiously, the artist only inks the first 19 of 38 total pages, relinquishing the rest to Rudy Nebres, Danny Bulanadi and Akin & Garvey. This is number 2 of 2 Red Sonja v3 issues with Redondo art and/or covers.
