Yep. We're merely temporary custodians of these treasures.

Some more temporary than others.

Everett’s Hydro-Man is wonderful… I have another issue. It would be great to have it reprinted.

A LOT of them are reprinted in a 2 volume Bill Everett archive set. I recently purchased both volumes and they are awesome!!!

Double posting this one: My favorite Robot cover (tied with Fantastic Comics 3 -a book i don't and probably won't ever own).

For all the cool things the Fantastic Comics 3 Robot Cover is in it's detailed genius, this one is a masterwork for it's simplicity.

Looks like a vintage French Advertising poster. :luhv:

Beauty!  Frank Thomas should get more love.  I first found out about him many years ago when reading a fanzine article on his work on the Owl in Crackajack Funnies. 

That’s a great book!! Hadn’t ever come across it before.

I agree with that Sqeggs guy: Frank Thomas (1914-1968) did a lot of fantastic covers, but doesn’t get much recognition these days. This blurb is from Lambiek:

Franklyn Thomas illustrated the syndicated 'All-American Football' strip in 1938, before working as a comic book artist in the 1940s. He did features for both Centaur ('Chuck Hardy', 'Dr. Hypno', 'The Eye Sees', 'Solarman') and Dell ('Billy and Bonnie Bee', 'Buddies' and scripts for 'Little Scouts', Marjorie Henderson Buell's 'Little Lulu' and Walter Lantz' 'Andy Panda' and 'Woody Woodpecker'.). Also in the 1940s, he made the 'Dinky Doyle' daily. In the following decade, he did the 'Going West' strip (1951-54), as well as 'Hossface Hank' (Al Smith Service, 1955-64). Between 1955 and 1965 he was ghost artist on Mik's 'Ferd'nand' strip.

 I have a VF/NM copy that I bought for about $15 a couple years ago. Might be time for a CGC submission...
