Captain Marvel Jr-Bud Thompson-1946


As much an early horror comics story as a superhero story, note the name of Fawcett editor Wendell Crowley on one of the tombstones in the cemetery and artist "Thompson" (no relation) throughout.

Flip Flap the Clown-Phil Berube-1947


Phil Berube would likely be remembered best as a sports cartoonist today but he did a lot of forgotten work for DC back in the day as well.

Pirate Prince-Dick Briefer-1943


One doesn't usually associate Frankenstein's Dick Briefer with being influenced by the great Will Eisner but that influence seems pretty obvious with a few of the characters here.

Bungle Island-Ed Nofziger-1970


Some wonderful cartoony relevance from Ed Nofziger, magazine cartoonist, book illustrator, animator and comic book artist.

The Vampire with Iron Teeth-Hy Fleishman-1953


This story, well-drawn by the still with us Hy Fleishman, actually set off a bizarre story in Scotland about a year after its US publication. See article below!

Snow Madness-Jon D'Agostino-1954


Be it movies, artwork, photographs, or comics, I love a good snow scene, and this story IS one. Some nice creepy art from penciler/inker/letterer Jon D'Agostino long before he settled in with teenage and children's comics artwork.

The Lost Kingdom of Athala-Wallace Wood-1951


Early Wally Wood may not be prime Wally Wood but it's still better than anything that's NOT Wally Wood.
