I’ve been wanting to upgrade this one for awhile (my favorite Everett cover) but given its rarity, I might have to just be grateful for the copy I have.  Jack Kirby does the interior art.  I’m not sure if this is Golden Age or Silver.  Any thoughts?

I just saw that jimbo posted a gorgeous photo of Yellow Claw awhile ago.  I don’t suppose you have a scan now that you can share?

Ted had a gorgeous copy a few years back.  I hesitated and regret it frequently.

If it was circa 2011, I bought it in Baltimore and then ended up selling it to October... I miss that book.... pushing 8.0. GOD BLESS....

Have you ever read the Everett biography, Fire and Water ?  It has scans of all kinds of drawings that would be impossible to buy, such as sketches he did for his family as gifts.  The book is written by Blake Bell.

Just re-read it the other night.  You can get through it in an afternoon pretty easily, but you'll get lost in the illustrations.

Sadly I recognize the owner of that crack and it kills me to say so.

 

(worship) If anyone could recognize someone by looking at a couple of inches of buttcrack I knew it would be you! (worship)
