This one is similar in sort of a different way...

:whee: It's not often that one beats out both you and Silver. I give myself a hand. :golfclap:

I've always felt that there was something similar about these two covers, but I've never been able to quite put my finger on it.

Clearly the same type font on the 10 cents text. Good catch!

Upon closer examination, it appears the same coffee pot was used for both covers. :o

Love this thread. I wonder who pays for all the broken desks (shrug)

I'm more impressed with the Boy's Ranch myself, but it's a very good pairing nonetheless.

Divided men.

STADV_181.jpg

 

A common theme in comics edited by Jack Schiff. He even created Ultra the Multi-Alien around that theme!

 

Consider. Strange Adventures 181 hit newsstands in August 1965:

Barely a month later Ultra was introduced in Mystery in Space 103:

Hep That Multi-man is odd character, I have an issue of the Challengers that features Multi-Man, but he looks much different than the one depicted on Strange Adventures. He is pint sized but gets to team up with Multi-Woman. (Iss. 34)

 

Excellent book! :cloud9:

That's because Ultra the Multi-Alien and Multi-Man are entirely unrelated characters.

Has this been mentioned? I've heard that AF 15 is a rip off of Tec 27

I have a slight change of rules to announce for this thread. Lets expand it to include an occasional splash page.

 

Alright then!

 

Here's a scan of the cover of Green Lantern 28:

A very solid cover, but I think the concept of the splash page was even better:

 

GreenLantern028-02_zps00821e07.jpg

 

I think the splash page concept of Green Lantern being thrown back for a loop toward the viewer would have made an even better cover than the actual one used. Julius Schwartz and Gil Kane evidently came around to sharing my opinion as the same concept was soon used for the cover of Green Lantern 33:
