The Steel Fist-H.C. Kiefer-1944


After this guy left the business, I think he sold his costume to DC's Atom.

Why, it's our old pals the Eagle and Buddy the Wonder Boy! It's been a while since we've seen one of their exciting adventures!

Swoop Storm-Boy Comics-1945


Another airplane thriller. About all I can say for this one from Charles Biro's BOY COMICS.

Kay McKay, Air Hostess-Art Saaf-1941


Nowadays, it's just mostly arguing with drunks or, if you're at United, dragging people off the plane. Back in the day, however, there was a lot more to an air hostess than the old "Coffee, tea, or me?" image. At least THIS one!

Billy the Kid-John Severin-1959


There's no mistaking Severin's expressive faces, Although associated mainly with Prize and EC and then later Marvel and Cracked, he was willing to draw westerns just about everywhere, including for the notorious cheapskates in Connecticut!

Zachariah, Yankee Peddler-1969


GCD speculates that this is some combination of Hy Eisman and/or Frank Thorne and I do see what they're seeing but I wouldn't want to go on record one way or another. Simple but nicely done, though.

Weenie the Sculptor-Bob Powell-1965


I love Bob Powell's art and this book, HENRY BREWSTER, was some of his final work. Not his best mind you but he did have a way with comedic faces.
