This one may have been posted already.  I had forgotten Raboy did this cover.   Would love to add a #1 and #3 but the #3 is a toughie.

One of my favs.  I've mentioned this before, but the writers at Fawcett hadn't yet figured out that the Japanese weren't Mongols.

As one of your favorite books, thought you might enjoy a scan of Mac's original cover artwork.  (thumbsu

don't you think a 6.0 would suit you better?

I love the colors on your copy.  I'll have to pull mine out to jog my memory as to whether that's a bad scan or it really is as washed out as it appears.

Well, his momma did tell him he needed to do that at least once a week.

Man, I’ve been trying to add a few more Raboy Master war covers to my collection, but they seem pretty scarce right now.

Ok guys...hear me out for a sec. I don't know if this observation has been mentioned before, and if it has forgive me, i couldn't find any Thread mentions through searches. . 

I love 'discovering' or at least opening the doors for conversation about uncredited / 'unrealized' artist works (Matt Baker Atlas / Quality works anyone?), and or comic book firsts. And yes, i know how it usually went down over at Fawcett and it seems hard lined: Beck Capt. Marvel/Whiz , Raboy Cap. Jr./Master Schaffenberger Marvel Family. 

Wow and Mary Marvel was another issue. Most notable is Swazye, but it seems she had rotating cover artist. 

BUT.....

I was looking at this cover very closely lately and though I have only seen credits (with a '?' no less) to Jack Binder, I think that was just a guess. I have seen many examples of Binders work and i don't see it here 'strongly'. 

Hold on to your hats: I think this may be a Raboy cover :whatthe:, at least penciled anyway but because he's so closely associated with Cap Jr, i don't think any one took the time to closely analyze other Fawcett covers he may have had a hand in. 

I have provided close ups of images of other Raboy works pulled from online that resemble aspects of the Wow cover (the children's faces, Mary's toned lean figure and face). This will probably be ignored or laughed at, but i think with a closer look, some sharp eyed Boardies may agree , it's a possibility hm
