Sweet book and you made me notice a new GA swipe. Street & Smith borrowed this bloody fellow for the Shadow cover a year later...

I doubt this will unseat Suspense 3 anytime soon, but I've long admired this one:

Pioneer Pictures Stories 6 is also great. Green bloodied face, remember Pearl Harbor and nice bright red background. Also super tough to find in any condition. Does anyone have a nicer scan? This image doesn't do it justice.

There are some other nice covers in the Pioneer Picture Stories run.  Maybe the weird title has kept it under the radar.

Who wouldn't want to use their Brain Muscle?

lol, I'd love to see a brain muscle in action.

These boards are definitely the wrong place to come for that!

I know this baby ain't exactly underrated, but still overshadowed by the granddaddy MC1's cover... so here goes.  Grade is a 0.3 (color copy cover until once in a blue moon I find a cover to marry).  Voldy slab and cropped accordingly.  :shy:

One of my favorites. The detail is amazing on this cover! I don't see this one posted or up for sale much. Hits on a couple of cylinders for me. Tougher black cover, nice close up horror face, close up scared face and cool skeleton guys looking for a fight. And all done by Bill Everett! (thumbsu

My fav Action cover is 19!

I also really love this obscure art duo who surprisingly have quite a large body of work to their credit...

Cover for Boy Commandos (DC, 1942 series) #6

That issue was one of the first 10 or so GA books I bought when a kid, probably by mail.  It was a really nice copy, although it had a sub crease.

And, yeah, those schmuks turned out a lot of stuff across every genre there was.

Neither of these are broke out in the Overstreet nor is there any mention of a war cover. What a shame. (shrug)

Mystery Tales 4 has always caught my eye cover wise and how tough to find in decent condition and paper quality
