Spectacular Spider-man v2 #46 marvel 1980s comic book cover art by Frank Miller
Frank Miller
Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-man v2 #46, 1980 - The sinister Cobra may be a contortionist, but the way Frank Miller pulls his leg above his head still looks awkward. Add to that a chaotic layout and garish promotional banner, and the results are less than satisfying. Miller does cleverly use the tv antennae to lead the eye from masthead to foreground to background. Other artists in this issue include Mike Zeck and Bruce Patterson. This is number 3 of 12 Spectacular Spider-man issues with Miller art and/or covers. This issue is also included in this Miller gallery.

Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #14, 1966 - Strange bubbles emanate from a newly arrived meteorite, causing all robots in their path to enlarge and run amok. Magnus gets help from an adventurous group of boys known as the Outsiders, who appeared in previous issues. Despite the display of gigantic menaces, Russ Manning opts for mostly medium-sized panels, which diminish the sense of scale. That aside, the artwork is as streamlined and engaging as previous issues. Manning's back-up story is brief but equally well drawn. This is number 14 of 21 Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints). This issue is also included in this Manning gallery.

Carl Barks
(Walt Disney's) Uncle Scrooge v1 #45, 1963 - Scrooge sails to a remote island to buy the proverbial geese that lays the golden eggs. But can he get there before his nemesis Magica De Spell does? Carl Barks' mediocre cover is largely offset by his story art. His work shines with the fine draftsmanship he's typically known for. A second Scrooge tale, "The Travel Tightwad", is shorter and a tad less memorable. This story was later reprinted in >Walt Disney Comics Digest #33. "Isle of Golden Geese" was reprinted in >Walt Disney Comics Digest #9. Both stories were reprinted in >Uncle Scrooge #139. Other artists in this issue include Tony Strobl. This is number of 70 Uncle Scrooge issues with Barks art and/or covers (not including reprints). Find >this issue or more >Barks or >Uncle Scrooge issues on ebay.

Coo Coo Comics v1 #34, 1947 - This unassuming funny animal comic is among many Standard issues with artwork by Frank Frazetta.

Each is drawn with a high level of draftsmanship (see interior page below). Other artists in this Standard golden age humor comic include Al Hubbard and Jack Bradbury. This is number 1 of 17 Coo Coo Comics with Frazetta art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Frazetta or >Coo Coo Comics issues on ebay.

Neal Adams
Justice League of America v1 #79, 1970 - Pollution in the form of a super-villain overcomes the worlds' greatest super-heroes. Superman himself makes an appeal for readers to get involved. Neal Adams tilts the horizon to make the scene all the more unnerving. Breathtakingly drawn, only the roll call to the left mars this particular cover. Other artists in this issue include Dick Dillin and Joe Giella. This is number 5 of 18 Justice League of America issues with Adams art and/or covers.

Bernie Wrightson
Asylum v1 #1, 1989 - In a gritty tale of the old west, a posse forms to hunt down a cold-blooded killer.  This is the first western tale by Alex Nino that I've seen, and a violent one at that. The layouts are sound but many of the illustrations falter. In delivering the full color cover, Bernie Wrightson does not disappoint with his grisly, horrific scene. Other artists in this independent horror comic include Christopher Schenck. This is number 1 of 1 Asylum issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Asylum issues with Nino art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Nino or >Wrightson issues on ebay.

Tales of Suspense v1 #71, 1965 - In a battle televised live around the world, Iron Man battles the Titanium Man in a clash of cultures. This is Wally Wood's only work on the series, inking Don Heck's pencils. His style is mostly evident on the female characters, but the overall enhancements are marginal at best. This story was later reprinted in >Iron Man special #1. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska. This is number 68 of 91 Tales of Suspense issues with Kirby art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 Tales of Suspense issues with Wood art and/or covers.

Iron Fist v1 #3, 1976 - Arriving in London to help a friend, Iron Fist and Misty Knight's plane is suddenly torn apart by the armor-masked Ravager. John Byrne divides some of the pages into too many panels, losing clarity in the process. The artist's inexperience shows in every panel and layout, most unfortunately in an anticlimactic final splash page. One bright spot is the opening page, where Byrne deftly superimposes the hero's face over an airport setting. Cover by Keith Pollard and Klaus Janson. This is number 3 of 15 Iron Fist issues with Byrne art and/or covers. This issue is also included in this Byrne gallery. Find >this issue or more >Byrne or >Iron Fist issues on ebay.

Matt Baker golden age 1940s st john comic book cover - Western Picture Stories / Giant Comics Editions #6
Matt Baker
Western Picture Stories / Giant Comics Editions v1 #6, 1949 - A giant masthead takes up most of the cover, leaving less room for the cowgirl and cattle rustlers. Regardless, Matt Baker work efficiently with the remaining space. There is depth, interest and clarity of storytelling. A note about this issue: St. John Publishing collected remainders of previously printed issues and re-bound them with new covers. Consequently, contents varied widely although usually within the same genre. This St. John golden age western comic was published by St. John. This is number 2 of 6 Giant Comics Editions issues with Baker art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Baker or >Giant Comics Edition issues on ebay.

Joe Kubert bronze age dc 1970s comic book cover - Tarzan #212
Joe Kubert
Tarzan of the Apes v1 #212, 1972 - Adapted from Edgar Rice Burrough's Jungle Tales of Tarzan, the ape-man finds himself captured by superstitious tribesmen. There is a wider variety of African animals depicted than usual, and Joe Kubert illustrates them skillfully. His double page title spread (pgs 2-3) of Tarzan and an elephant is roomy, while accommodating an unusually long but effective horizontal panel. Superbly paced panels leads to a full page splash of the hero at his most triumphant, breaking free with great ferocity. This issue also includes a feature on past Tarzan artists, showing reprinted panels by Burne Hogarth, Hal Foster, Rex Maxon, Reed Crandall, Virgil Finlay, Bob Lubbers, Roy Krenkel, J. Allen St. John, Fred Arting, John Celardo and Russ Manning. This is number 6 of 44 Tarzan issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints).
