Just picked up 2 Cole covers, and a Holiday Comics issue too. His funny animal ones aren't my favorite, but they are affordable - plus I didn't have any of those yet. I slowed down a bit after my Startling Terror Tales #10 (same one as above).

 

I think I'm up to about 60-65 Cole books. I needs me some more romance covers! :)

This was my first L.B. Cole comic. His covers were the reason I started collecting Golden Age comics.

The only two I know are his two biggies: Suspense Comics #8 and Startling Terror Tales #11.

Thanks. I may not read the story. I like the cover so much that a real crappy story may ruin it for me. I choose to believe "metaphor" though.

That's one of Cole's best covers so you're safe to assume that it's better not to open the book. Congratulations!! :applause:
