COMIC BOOK CATACOMBS opens up today to reveal a 1953 tale of Taranga the Jungle King! The point of interest here is that the art is by Jay Disbrow, a veteran with a quirky style who revived his career doing minor independent product in the seventies and eighties and more recently beginning in 2000 did 312 Sunday strip style color webcomic episodes entitled AROC OF ZENITH. I met Disbrow at a Con in 1977 and he proceeded to explain to me how great and important he was in comics history. Eventually he talked me into buying a large Sunday strip style poster which he then signed. Not quite in Fletcher Hanks territory but an artist whose work is endlessly fascinating whether old or new!

Speaking of Sunday strips, BOB MITCHELL IN THE 21ST CENTURY is up to episode 79 of sequential reprints of the not bad late seventies DC strip, THE WORLD’S GREATEST SUPOERHEROES. Essentially a JUSTICE LEAGUE comic, Superman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman and Wonder Woman are currently teamed with Black Lightning in the continuity. Go back and read ‘em all for Bronze Age thrills you never saw before. Written by “Pesky” Marty Pasko and drawn by George Tuska and Vince ” Why does everybody hate me?” Colletta.

The Kirby Museum’s SIMON & KIRBY website continues a truly in-depth look at the pair’s creation of and early days in romance comic books. They’re up to Chapter 21, in fact, with a detailed analysis of a number of issues with art by S&K shop artists Mort Meskin and George “Inky” Roussos.

    Hate Vinnie Colletta? Not me man, give me some Vinnie girls from the romantic 50s or some Kirby Colletta Thor comics any day. What about his Wonder Woman? Hubba bubba.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
