Tide of Terror-Carl Burgos-1949

GCD isn't sure this is Burgos but could be. I have to admit that until recently, I had no idea just how important Burgos was to Timely/Atlas right up through the end of the 1950s. Odd that his style just didn't fly when he was put on a couple of second tier heroes for Marvel just a very few years later.

I've seen a lot of Burgos' stuff from the late 1930s and early 1940s (HumanTorch, Iron Skull), as well as his 1950s and 1960s work. His style sure changed a lot over the years.

Burgos' role at Atlas is described in detail in a post at Michael Vassalo's Timely-Atlas blog: http://timely-atlas-comics.blogspot.com/2016/04/happy-100th-birthday-to-carl-burgos.html
