Creepy v1 #12, 1966 - Kidnapped by a scientist, a man awakens to find himself strapped next to a growling werewolf. Steve's Ditko's sequencing is well thought out, maximizing the storytelling. Like other works for Warren Publishing, his gray washes enhance his graphic renditions. This story was reprinted in >Eerie v3 #135. This is number 4 of 8 Creepy issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints). Other artists in this Warren silver age horror magazine include Angelo Torres and Jerry Grandenetti.

John Byrne
Batman v1 #401, 1989 - Men dressed as the Batman are being murdered in Gotham while the real caped crusader is out of the country. John Byrne writes the first of a three-part mystery, while drawing only the covers. The image of a knife through the cowl is arresting, strengthened by a strong radial layout. Other artists in this DC copper age superhero comic include Jim Aparo. This is number 3 of 5 Batman issues with Byrne art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Byrne or >Batman issues on ebay.

Frank Brunner
Star Reach Classics v1 #4, 1983 - Frank Brunner's new cover nicely jumps off the page. The black and white contrast in the background certainly contributes to this. No new stories inside, but the Brunner reprint from Quack #1 reflects the pirate-themed cover. Other artists in this issue include Mike Vosburg and Lee Marrs. This is number 1 of 1 Star Reach Classics issues with Brunner art and/or covers (not including reprints). Find >this issue or more >Brunner or >Star Reach Classics issues on ebay.

(Walt Disney's) Donald Duck v1 #188, 1977 - Without much fanfare, this issue contains previously published artwork by Cark Barks. "The Master Glasser" comes from Donald Duck #68.

Matt Baker
Teen-age Romances v1 #32, 1953 - While beach-goers frolic in the background, a young couple lounges prominently in the foreground. Their relationship appears more tenuous compared to the others and their figures are less engaged. Matt Baker's scene masterfully conveys the boy's concern and the girl's lack of interest in him. Her innate sexuality is suggested not by her fallen strap, but also her pose and expression. Perhaps not surprisingly, Baker's composition is also superbly designed. Other artists in this St. John golden age romance comic include Bernard Sachs. This is number 32 of 42 Teen-age Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers.

Neal Adams
DC Special v1 #4 presents 13 Shock Ending Stories, 1969 - Consistent with other his horror covers, Neal Adams places children in precarious situations as a dramatic theme. I like how the ominous shadow neatly frames the interior scene. A fine Jack Kirby tale inside is actually a reprint from Tales of the Unexpected #16. Other artists in this DC silver age horror comic include Jerry Grandenetti, Bill Draut, Carmine Infantino, Joe Giella, Gene Colan, George Papp and Leonard Starr. This is number 2 of 5 DC Special issues with Adams art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Adams, >Kirby or >DC Special issues on ebay.

G.I. Joe, A Real American Hero v1 #84, 1989 - Much of the story is told in flashback, revealing some background information on the characters Billy and Snake-Eyes. Marshall Rogers handles the pencilling chores once again. Certain panels are reminiscent of earlier works, such as the bar scenes on pages 13-15. In general though, his illustrations are frankly mediocre, particularly the first few pages. This is number 6 of 8 G.I. Joe issues with Rogers art and/or covers.

Two-Fisted Tales v2 #9, 1994 - Forty years later, publisher Russ Cochran re-presents the EC war stories that became modern classics. This edition reprints Two-Fisted Tales #26, including some of the best work of Wally Wood's career. Other artists in this issue include Jack Davis. Cover by Harvey Kurtzman.

House of Mystery v1 #241, 1976 - A puppeteer comes up with a profitable scheme involving three midgets. In this Nestor Redondo tale, panels seem crowded and poorly planned. Page five, panel two suffers from poor figure drawing proportions. The inking is atypical for Redondo, leading me to wonder if some of the work was done by studio assistants. Other artists in this DC bronze age horror comic include Frank Robbins and E.R. Cruz. This is number 13 of 16 House of Mystery issues with Redondo art and/or covers.

Don Newton
Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction v1 special #1, 1976 - In the distant future, Donald Clayborne hires a company to help him recreate a painful event from his past. Alex Nino illustrates this tale of artificial redemption with sometimes jarring complexity. Both his scenes of advanced technologies and primeval jungles are visually rich, despite being printed in black and white. Don Newton's meticulous cover is brightly painted, almost electrified. Other artists in this Marvel bronze age science fiction comic include Rick Bryant, Michael Kaluta, Ruben Yandoc, Vicente Alcazar, Bruce Jones, John Buscema, Dick Giordano and Adrian Gonzales. See the original cover for this issue. This is number 1 of 1 Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction special issues with Newton art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction special issues with Nino art and/or covers.

Joe Kubert
DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest v1 #14 / U.F.O. Invaders, 1981 - Joe Kubert nicely captures the pandemonium of an alien invasion with his chaotic cover. His loosely rendered style perfectly fits the scenario. Still, the illustration falls just short of his usual standards. Most of the interior stories first appeared in various DC sci-fi titles, many from the 1960s. Other artists in this DC bronze age science fiction digest include Russ Heath.
