Teen Confessions v1 #89 , 1975 - A couple's tender moment is eyed by a tough-looking biker in the background. Don Newton does an adequate job on this painted cover, one of his rare works in the romance genre. The rich color palette not only provides warmth but establishes depth as well. The backlighting of the foreground figures is unusual, but contributes to its distinctiveness. This is number 1 of 2 Teen Confessions issues with Newton art and/or covers.

Walt Disney's Zorro v1 #9, 1960 - Rather than the two main Zorro features, Alex Toth is instead tasked with drawing a much shorter tale. Bandits take over a small village in old California, terrorizing its passive residents. The artwork is disappointingly minimal with roughly applied lines, especially on the last page. The result is a work that seemingly displays a lack of effort on Toth's part. Other artists in this issue include Warren Tufts. This story was later reprinted in Zorro v2 #4. This is number 7 of 8 Zorro issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints).

Marvel Two-In-One v1 #6, 1974 - A face emerges from the mystical cauldron below, resembling a stuffed animal more so than a ferocious beast. That aside, Jim Starlin's only cover for the series features a terrific rendition of Doctor Strange. Nicely detailed, the illustration stands out despite the large masthead. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska and Mike Esposito. This is number 1 of 1 Marvel Two-In-One issues with Starlin art and/or covers.

Batman v1 #234, 1971 - Batman's old adversary Two-Face returns, looking for a hidden cache of gold doubloons. His golden age-era origin from Detective Comics #66 is retold, along with his incarceration, re-introduction into society and return to crime. The villain's maniacal, oversized face is prominently displayed on Neal Adams' cover. The story pages are adeptly drawn and laid out, focusing on the two main characters. The ending is anti-climactic, but Adams' opening splash of the Batman crouching in a swamp is eerily compelling. This story was later reprinted in Best of DC #14. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino, Joe Giella and Irv Novick.

Incredible Hulk v1 #4, 1962 - Jack Kirby's cover touts the two full-length features equally, resulting in two rather mediocre illustrations. The interiors fare somewhat better, although the panels are numerous and the layouts more crowded. The opening to "Gladiator from Space" is a notable exception, with its full page art of a typically creative Kirbyesque spacecraft. The inclusion of the cast of characters also gives the page the feel of a science fiction movie poster. Kirby's pencils are slightly diminished in this issue, probably his least impressive of the series. Part of  this issue was later reprinted in Giant-Size Defenders #1. This is number 4 of 5 Incredible Hulk issues with Kirby art and/or covers.

Six-Gun Western v1 #1, 1957 - Despite some fine work in this issue by Joe Maneely and Richard Doxsee, Al Williamson's contribution is two small illustrations for the text story "The Bronc Buster". Roughly drawn and executed, they lack the significance of Williamson's more robust works for Atlas. Other artists in this issue include John Romita, Reed Crandall and John Severin (cover). This is number 1 of 3 Six-Gun Western issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
