Someone Is Following-Richard Doxsee-1957


The lovely, sophisticated art here from Richard Doxsee, a favorite I discovered via this blog, shines through in spite of the less than stellar reproduction in the original comic book.

The Last Train-Jerry Grandenetti-1975


There was a time when one would be hard pressed to tell Grandenetti art from Will Eisner art, By the '70s, though, Jerry had developed into quite the stylist. At the time, that style escaped me, but through the years, I've come to appreciate it.

Flash the Fox-Joe Edwards-1947


Best known for his more than 30 years of LI'L JINX, Joe Edwards was quite a fun cartoonist no matter what type of strip he was working on.

Anniversary-John Romita-1956


Here we see future Spidey artist John Romita a full decade before he took over the webs from Ditko. For that entire ten year period, JR Sr  would toil in romances with a few cowboys here and there early on. Here at Atlas he seems almost a clean, DC-type style. Perhaps that's why most of those romances would ultimately be for National.

John Doe-Paul Reinman-1962


Some solid work by the oft-maligned Paul Reinman, a veteran of DC's superheroes and here soon to become the "Jack Kirby" of Mighty Comics just a few years later.
