|MARVEL COMICS LIBRARY Silver Surfer 1968-1970 |
Collects #1-18, 1968-70, in a huge XXL size. Numbered & limited, 5,000. Highly Recommended. By Stan Lee and John Buscema.Introduced by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the fertile pages of The Fantastic Four, the Silver Surfer quickly established himself as one of Marvel's most far-out characters. Enslaved by Galactus to prowl the cosmos for the demi-god's next planet-sized meal, the Surfer was as tragic a figure as any in comics — and he looked impossibly cool at the same time! In the spring of 1968, things came together for both writer and character, with Lee giving the Surfer Marvel's very first ongoing double-sized 25 cent annual-sized comic. Lee also recruited John Buscema, who had recently been lending his muscular brushwork to The Avengers, for art chores. Together, they spun off a run of legendary tales that helped define the character forevermore. Taschen, 2023. Rush Service and International shipping would require an additional charge. ...More.

Highly Recommended. By Lou Mougin.313 pages! A perfect sequel to his very popular Secondary Superheroes. "Not all the heroes of the Golden Age wore masks, costumes and capes.

|I was a little surprised to realize we’d let Superheroes run out, but it has been 4 years since it came out. And it was published at $75, a bit of a hefty price although well worth it in my mind.

Allen Koszowski’s first professional sale to Asimov's Science Fiction in 1982. If you’ve ever flipped through a Cemetery Dance, Fantasy Tales, Weird Tales, Chills or other genre publication, then you’ve likely witnessed his understated yet distinctive brand of textured, black and white iconography. It can be eerie, menacing, and even cultish. Whether it’s crestfallen creatures from the great beyond, disturbed underlings from beyond the grave, or embattled forces under grave danger, Koszowski’s artistic range knows no bounds.

|SEVEN TALES FROM KING ARTHUR'S COURT: Paintings by Edmund Dulac|
Highly Recommended. Written by John Erskine and beautifully illustrated by Edmund Dulac, these were originally published in The American Weekly and have been expertly collected into a single volume by Albert Seligman. This popular newspaper supplement thrived until 1966, but was at its peak in the 30s and 40s. It commissioned Dulac, as well as Flagg, Finlay, Vargas and others to create eye-catching covers and wonderfully illustrated stories. Here are some of the best, never before collected. A 24-page introduction looks at all the wonderfully illustrated King Arthur collections, with illustrations, from Howard Pyle and Beardsley, to N.C. Wyeth and H.J. Ford.Markosia, 2023....More.
