  1. Oops! Sorry, misread your post. I saw lots of large books featuring Kirby & Marvel, but none the same size & weight. Doesn't mean there aren't, or won't be any. I'll keep my eyes peeled!
  2. Went and saw Captain Marvel. Liked it. A lot. Ben Mendelsohn is great; one of my favorite actors. Nice to see him in an MCU flick. The cat freaked me out, though. And I like cats. I felt like it was a great introduction to the MCU post Iron Man/Captain America. I do think Feige & Co. have quite a challenge to equal the chemistry/tension/attraction between RDR's Iron Man and Chris Evan's Captain America. That (for me) was the heart and soul of the Avengers. They will need to develop a character that Brie Larson can play off of, similar to (but hopefully different from) the way Cap played off of Iron Man. Just my opinion. When either or both Iron Man and Cap sacrifice themselves for the other in End Game, given their relationship, it will be a tough act to follow.
  3. It's a compilation of FF stories from FF 48-50, 74-77, 120-123 and 242-244. https://www.amazon.com/Fantastic-Four-Galactus-Stan-Lee/dp/1302913298
  4. I'm in the love Big John camp. Top 5 artist? No. In my top 10? Likely, or very close. As Mike said, the Hulk page was John's earliest work for silver age Marvel, tied with his Nick Fury story. His super-hero anatomy got better fairly quickly, once Stan showed John what was expected: as for electric, I always thought this cover was pretty darn charged with energy: I would give my eye-teeth to own this cover (or any of the art shown in this thread):
  5. ASM 33 or FF 49, depending on the day.
  6. I started looking in the Grand Comics Database, starting with the Superman issues I bought as a kid and found it in ish 184. Once I thought I knew the title, "The Invisible Handicap", I googled the title + DC PSA and then all the different GCD entries showed up along with the Heritage auction.
  7. @ShellStew Found it (online, without going through boxes). The original art is on Heritage: https://comics.ha.com/itm/memorabilia/miscellaneous/dc-psa-ad-by-sheldon-moldoff-complete-1-page-story-the-invisible-handicap-proof-dc-1966-/a/121907-14073.s the PSA can be found in Superman 184, Metal Men 18, World's Finest 155, Atom 23, Wonder woman 160, and Hawkman 12. Probably other issues, too. This is what you're looking for, right?
  8. If I can make the time, I'll go through some books and see if I can find the page in question. It will be in a range of books, not just a single issue.
  9. @ShellStew DC comics had regular public service announcements in their comics in the 1960's. It was a one-page cartoon usually featuring Superman correcting bad behaviors and attitudes of children. One of these had a boy making fun of another boy's drawing (just like the one you pictured) and then Superman (or Superboy?) flies down and corrects the kid. I remember another one that had a checklist of sorts; it was about prejudice - whether you (the reader) liked or disliked a range of subjects, from spiders to black people. The lesson being, it's okay to dislike spiders as a group, but people, not so much. There was another one on littering, as I recall. You can find the page in question in mid 1960 DC comics.
  10. As for artwork that Marie drew for Ditko in Ditko style, including an iconic Spider-Man pin up used as a poster, I think there might be some confusion. Ditko drew the image for the six foot Spider-Man poster that was advertised and sold on the Bullpen pages in the mid 1960s (I had it hanging proudly in my room for years). The poster was reissued a few years later in various smaller sizes, including in a MMMS poster set. The second poster looked like it was reworked by Marie Severin, and the other posters in the set looked reworked as well (including a Kirby Thor, a Kirby Hulk, and a Kirby Human Torch). Ditko's poster 6 ft Marie Severin rework MMMS set with reworked posters
