Norseman Warrior by Frank Frazetta

I suspect someone nabbed this up and we will never see it again, but if you know of a better version, I would love to sit corrected

"I'll Create New, Invincible Weapons!" by Jack Kirby

Actually, the Red Skull said it while envisioning this pop-gun that was so colossal it would take three guys just to fire it.  But we all know who REALLY came up with all this stuff

Me And My Shadow by Barry Smith

In this production drawing for Conan the Destroyer, Smith shows the barbarian's greatest foe, as for many of us, just may be his own darkness

New Jeff Jones Paperback Cover!

Yep, just new to me.  Only one from this series I had never found on the used book shelves, until now.  Please embiggen

Marvelmania Hulk by Jack Kirby Is Almost Here!

For months I been drooling over the coming Jack Kirby Collector, where John Morrow will finally show us what the Herb Trimpe poster couldashoulda been, but I keep forgetting Jack's Marvelmania Hulk from the Marvelmania Portfolio (first image).  Amaz'n similiarities

Rejected Buck Rogers by Frank Frazetta

Greatest rejected comic book cover EVER

Another Transfer Grid by Jack Kirby

A while back, I did a post called Alicia Takes The Transfer Grid (should be an album name, methinks), but the first image here is bigger, better, faster, stronger

Alien VS Batman by Berni Wrightson

Good thing Batman had a girlfriend at the time of this conflixtion, Batman

Pellucidar by Frank Frazetta

Just got the PB again, and it confirms what I usually say (Cap'n's Comics--fun but redundant)--the original paperback cover is usually the best.  So, once Wally Wood had his character Dynamo being dropped out of a bombay door onto the bad guys, and Dynamo says, "Bum's away!"  That just might apply here

More Mad Electrons by Jim Steranko

A couple we haven't seen before (at least on here)

Bucky, Cap'n America, and The Red Skull by Jack Kirby

As big as you wanna (that is, please embiggen).  If you go to a support group and say, "Hi, my name is Bucky," you'll already be gett'n twice the love of the regular Joe.  That being said, one of the all-time great kickers in the NFL was named Bucky, so go figure

If Frank Frazetta Illustrated The Jungle Book

Actually, ERB's tale has some strik'n similarities to the one spun by Kipling

The Wrighthing (and Hulk) by Berni Wrightson

Sometimes, the wrighthing can be a monstrous task

Ulik by Jack Kirby

As Thor learned, an angry Ulik is probably the best reason to strive to never lose your memory and join the circus

Syzygy Cover by Jim Steranko

The unused cover to Tower of Shadows #1 did make it onto this fanzine whose name, if you say it fast enough, will always make you sound precocious

Dust Album Hard Attack with a Frank Frazetta Cover

Music albums that used Frazetta art were fun to look at, and this was no exception.  My only complaint is the droplets of blood on the snow seem to be miss'n on many of the printings

Vanguard Illustrated #5 Cover by Mike Kaluta

I found this in a little shop in C. Springs back in the day, nestled in a bargain bin, and stopped and said, "uh-huh" even though it looked boogered cuz of the missing corner (lower left).  But there's nothing missing

When The Space Beasts Attack! by Jack Kirby

Amaz'n!  Dreamed this as a little one, right before I saw it
