It’s Dollman Monday! (Redux)

While trolling through Scott Shaw’s wonderful Oddball Comics site I found a interesting Doll Man cover. Sol Brodsky and Israel Waldman under their I. W. Publishing/Super Comics, Inc. imprint illegally reprinted Golden Age stories from old art or printing plates they dug up in the 1960s. Doll Man had three issues resurrecting his stories including this reprint of last week’s It’s Doll Man Monday comic. What amazes me is that, even when he’s not tied up, Doll Man instantly “assumes the position” of thrusting his little package towards the villain Minstrel in virtually the same pose of the Golden Age cover. Maybe Doll Man is trying to live up to what I.W. deemed him on the cover, “The Biggest Little Pack of Dynamite”. Or maybe a flaming banjo will just simply do that kind of stuff to you.

Compare the cover above with last week’s It’s Doll Man Monday cover below. I do note that instead of a bell tower the new cover’s location is an art museum which makes me happy as i alway like examples of “The Unholy Marriage of Art and Comics”, the Arf books’ subtitle.

    Flaming Banjo sounds like a euphemism for something, I’m not sure what.

  2. Ger Apeldoorn Says:

    As many Waldman covers, this one is probably drawn by Russ Andru and Mike Esposito.

  3. Craig Yoe Says:

    Oh, thanks, Ger, I was wondering who drew that. Isn’t there a new book out about the Andru/Esposito team? Did they do the other IW Dollman covers? I want to see those.

  4. Rob Allen Says:

    I thought I posted a comment yesterday but it isn’t here.

    Sol Brodsky wasn’t involved in IW/Super Comics. He and Waldman got together in 1970; their company was called Skywald (Brod{sky-Wald}man).

    IW/Super Comics re-used old covers if they were available. For new covers, Waldman mostly went to Andru & Esposito. There are even a few done by Esposito alone. The only other artist I can recall doing some IW/Super covers was Joe Simon.

    The Andru/Esposito book has been out for a few months; the author’s blog is ohdannyboy.blogspot.com
