Trad'n Card (s?) by Neal Adams

Angel VS Sauron was a match made in heaven (they both had wings).  Angel was the "nickname" of the badass that walked by as I was being pummelled by a gang one night who said, "Hey, guys, be cool.  One at a time."  He bought me enough time for the cops to arrive, for which I'm eternally grateful

Undersea City by Wally Wood

Hey!  How come no one ever mentioned this to me?  Is it fun to sit around and snicker and say, "Wow, Cap'n doesn't even know about this blah-blah-blah and he claims to be so-and so's biggest fan (remember-6foot1 and a ton'o fun)"?  Well, don't live another day in embarassment and guilt, always tell the Cap'n about rare art.  Seriously, though, I was scouting around thru the wilderness net, and just found this 1958 hardbound cover, and I dig it---so cool how the ocean wraps around the spine, methinks

Remembering Berni Wrightson

Shame on me, but two different guys had to tell me today that Berni passed.  I dunnae what to say.  He's always been a big part of this for me (all over this blog the last seven years).  Here's examples of three of my favorite things--young fanzine era Berni, then the artistic genius of Swamp Thing, then the artistic genius of Frankenstein.  Good on ya, Berni....job well done
