Thanks so much to all of you who have written to say how much you've enjoyed this and all my other blogs over the years. I hope you'll consider ordering this 500 page BEST OF BOOKSTEVE'S LIBRARY, now available in book form via Amazon!
The ebook should be available next week and for those who have asked, I should be able to have some signed copies available directly from me in a few weeks!

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.
