  2. I admit I would like to see this one fully colored. Anyone have a pretty copy? Alan?

     

    Fight55FC.jpg

     

    Maybe Alanna has one. Mine's coloring is crappy too -

     

     

    I used to have the Rockford copy but its colors were no better. I dont recollect ever seeing one with bright reds, but deep orange I have seen. That lovely Rockford #50 of Cheetah's used to be mine long ago - bought straight from Worlds Finest along with #52 and a couple of others in the same number range. Still have the Rangers #21 and Fight #41 I bought at the same time, but sold those Fights to FHMan or his father years ago. He just resold the #52 in his sales thread I believe. I may as well post 'em - two of my favourite FH covers. I have seen deep reds on one or two Rangers #21s. There is also a copy of Fight #41 with a red background out there - it may be a pedigree, cant recall:

    RangersComics2180Rockford.jpg

     

     

    Ah, nostalgia! Anyone else buy Rockfords from that Worlds Finest catalogue? I think I may still have it somewhere. Must be 15 years ago. Before the internet they were the best mail order company in my eyes!


  3. The cover of Chilling Tales #16 is a brilliantly original composition which induces terror and vertigo through the use of arcs and diagonals. (The artist Marc Chagall used to use the same devices to induce a dream-like state.) The lurid green light bouncing off the walls conveys the intensity of heat and light as the poor victim is lowered into the flames. The gleeful, uniformly maniacal expresssions on the faces of the mad monks is darkly comedic and contrasts sharply with the victim's youthful innocence. There is no hero dashing to the rescue here...a chilling tale indeed.

     

    Like most of the very best covers, it needs no word or thought balloons!

  4. Warren King's cover for Spectacular Adventures #2 is one of the most intensely passionate images ever created for a comic book cover,and takes full advantage of the over-sized format. The key to the image is the use of black. The girl's balck hair echoes and merges with the guy's jersey. The intense white highlights are less about light and shadow than they are a unifying motif which stresses the quality of design and the power of shape. We are not distracted by unnecessary detail from contemplation of the emotional content. And we are not sold short by the story inside, which is simply astonishing!

  5. I no longer own this book, but if a masterpiece is a cover that stirs emotion, then this is the one for me. Here's what I wrote about it in the Fawcett thread:

     

    Published 3 months after Pearl Harbor. The cover is extraordinary, a child hero with what can only be described as blood-lust. Having already disabled three Japanese planes, he flies at a fourth, his eyes filled with rage, his hands outstretched as claws, ready to tear apart what very well may be the same planes that destroyed our navy and killed so many of our men that Sunday morning at Pearl Harbor. It's an angry cover, filled with the emotion of a nation bent on vengeance, and rightly so. It's visceral, powerful, and all in color for a dime...

    so, so happy to have my modest little copy. thanks again, sir.

    This cover is stunning! And so are the copies, well done gents!


  6. This one doesn't seem to grab many people....but to me, it's one of the coolest and most profound covers ever.....not my copy unfortunately. GOD BLESS...

    This one is hardly ever seen in high grade, so it can look somewhat dull. A high grade copy brings out its hidden qualities, however! Beautiful copy.


  7. So, as mentioned in the Have a Cigar thread, this is how you avoid scanning over a 1000 books. These are my Four Colors to date. That's 20 stacks of about 50 right there. I look at this and can only wonder how much the supplies alone set me back lol

     

     

    Simply stunning Michael! I am in awe!


  8. This one used to be thought of as pretty rare, although I think I've seen a few posted on the boards this year;

    Jay

    I searched for a few years to locate a copy, then I was able to obtain 2 copies within 2 months...but, it is definitely "rarely" offered for sale (thumbs u

     

    I agree with my esteemed colleague. Of all the icon covers this is the one I have found it impossible to find! At least at a price I considered sane!
