Pretty strong prices on them all...hopefully he did great in this auction!

Any idea who inked this cover?

makes sense. Sure didn't look like Ayers. I love Ditko's inks but they always throw me off a bit when I look at Jack's work.

It is an interesting ink job, isn’t it?

gray-tone, ink wash-ey feel. I hadn’t really given that cover its due!

Another Saturday night, another Svengoolie feature - "Dr. Cyclops" from 1940. Its about a crazy Doctor shrinking animals & people based on a Thrilling Wonder Stories pulp :

Albert Dekker in Dr. Cyclops (1940)34546105-lf

Reminded me of this cover:

Of course there are many sci-fi/fantasy/PCH stories of this type (people in bee hives & ant hills anyone?), but this caught my attention because it was released back in 1940. It was directed by  Ernest B. Schoedsack who also did King Kong a few years earlier and was the first horror movie done in 3-strip Technicolor (according to Wiki).

There was a stretch there, before the format change, when this thread was as active as any on the boards. We gave the SA war thread a real run for its money!

Watching the first GotG movie again and keyed in on this exchange:

 

Image result for gotg 89 times

 

Hmmm, 89 times? Of all numbers to pick.....is that a hidden reference to honor another earlier PHM legend?

If that was an Easter Egg, it was designed for maybe 14 people.

So basically... just this thread.

Still, of all the potential integers they could use in the -script.....they picked 89.

Until Groot was in the movie, Fin Fang Foom was the only real featured creature in this genre.

Just odd enough to comment on :)

I would dearly love for your theory to be true! Screw it, I’m on board! :bigsmile:

 

Geek check. FFF (10-61) is not earlier than Groot (11-60).
