We start off today with a young John Buscema, already an excellent craftsman with this 1958 Dell adaptation of Ray Harryhausen’s now-classic fantasy swashbuckler, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad.
John Romita, Jr has long since become one of the premier artists in comics but we all have to start somewhere. Following in his own legendary father’s inky footsteps, here is JR, Jr’s first Spider-Man story from 1977, written by fellow blogger Scott Edelman and inked by Al Milgrom.
The Blog at the End of Time continues its Bad Costume Contest with contestants this time being Quality’s Black Condor and the Red Bee, both from the early 1940′s and both represented here by their origin stories and lots of nifty Lou Fine and Gill Fox covers!
Finally, Sam Henderson introduces us to Grin, an early seventies humor mag that was a cross between Mad and National Lampoon. Here we have my Net-pal Alan Kupperberg with Jack Abel doing a long, not particularly funny but well-drawn parody of the Godfather.
