Wow, some heavy hitters in that line-up: Burks, Kuttner, Williamson, and Keller!

Doesn't that have a Human Torch comic book story in it?

It's an odd observation, I know, but Marvel Science Stories & Dynamic Science Stories are very much a mirror image forerunner to Marvel Mystery Comics & Daring Mystery Comics. Marvel Science Stories #1 debuted in November of 1938. It's third issue was cover dated February 1939, as was Dynamic Science Stories #1. Marvel Comics debuted with a small print run in October 1939, with a larger second printing in November 1939. It's third issue (now Marvel Mystery Comics) was cover dated January 1940, as was Daring Mystery #1. That coincidence always struck me as cool.

Indeed it does!!! I don't have a pic of it handy, but it's in there!! It's actually only a one page story, but it's pretty cool :)

These are my favorites.  There's a lot more I could add, but these are the 16 that I think are her best.  I haven't included anything post-1938, because honestly I think the quality drops off.

All strong choices, but I would need to include the Weird Tales "peacock" cover.  :cloud9:

That one I've got, unlike any of the ones RedFury showed. 

Mostly agreed on the post-1938 covers, although they're still pretty good.  There are at least a couple latter ones I really like, but they're not as iconic as the earlier run.

This one?  It's by Tilburne, not Brundage.

No, the one OtherEric posted with the plumage.  I wasn't even aware there was a literal peacock cover!  :foryou:

Haha, oh yeah, I do have that other one but totally forgot about it.  I was racking my brain trying to think of a Brundage peacock cover, and there it is!  lol  That is a good one!
