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.

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.

The Ginch and Claude Pennygrabber-Jim Mooney-1943
That's "GINCH," not "GRINCH." Here's a busy little bit of wartime insanity credited to a very young Stan Lee and, in tiny little print at the bottom so small the GCD folks missed it, artist Jim Mooney.

The All-Seeing Eye-Jack Kirby-1957
Some nice touches here but overall one of the most pedestrian Kirby jobs ever IMHO. GCD credits Jack as inker, too, which would be rare but not unheard of. Some of the thin lines remind me of the work of inker Chris Rule, though, known for inking Jack a lot around this time.
