TTA 60 is a tough one becasue the cover layout doesn't really lend itself to a round image for a clock. I'll give it a shot, do you have a second choice ?

HI Korvac Saga, the Strange Tales 114 looks promising. The characters are positioned pretty good and WOW, what a cool cover. I'll get back to you here on that one.

In fifth grade (1980-81), I remember charishing my copy of Strange Tales 113. It was one of the few early Marvels I owned as a kid.

I'm still working on the ST 114, I've put about 3 hours into it and it's almost there, in the meantime, I finished up this classic MATT FOX cover to CHILLING TALES....Fox was a really cool artist who reminds me in a way of WOLVERTON, however he hardly did any comic covers. He did do about a dozen WEIRD TALES pulps covers in the late 40's and early 50's.

Is there are a reason why you're sticking with "crusty old fogey covers", rather than more current, and potentially more popular, ones? Is it a legality thing?

NO reason really, I just like the old school covers. Give me a few suggestions.

No real suggestions, I was just thinking that a clock with ASM 129, Hulk 181, GS X-Men #1, etc. might not be a bad seller.

Man, this was tough, I spent about 3.5 hours on this one. I think it turned out decent. It went from this.....

Forgive me if this has already been explained, but are you selling any of these clocks? Or just manipulating the covers to fit into clock for display here?

 

Just that I'm interested in buying, dude!

GL87


GL87, another classic cover....here is what I've got so far, just the main image outlined...do you want it cluttered with all the other stuff that's on the cover or would you like it minimal with just the word balloon and a starbust type background ?
