This is why the 70's is my favorite period of comic books - especially the cover art!

This is from the Golden Age (1947), but I've always thought the colors really made this a stand-out cover!

Wow. For a comic from 1947 that's really impressive. Great use of angles/perspective, nice display of action, and the use of color, as you noted, is great! The use of shadow and shading is also fantastic.

I looked it up, the artists for that cover were Jack Burnley and Stan Kaye. I haven't heard of either of them, but they knocked it out of the park with that one.

Jack Burnley is pretty well-known to golden age collectors - especially Superman. He did a number of iconic covers, with the one below probably being his most well-known.



The other really cool Patriotic (wartime) cover was done by Fred Ray

Here's one that really caught my eye in 1975, and I still love it (and the issue)...

This is a great cover. I love the characters against a stark black background. And the artwork is excellent...
