Showcase #82 / Nightmaster - Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Showcase v1 #82 featuring Nightmaster, 1969 - Perhaps the first sword and sorcery hero in comics, Nightmaster preceded Conan the Barbarian by less than a year. Joe Kubert's sketchy approach works better on westerns and adventure tales. On this cover, he seems to struggle with the fantasy genre, compounded by the large text and masthead. Other artists in this issue include Jerry Grandenetti and Dick Giordano. This is number 10 of 19 Showcase issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Showcase issues.
