Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

I really loved Graham Nolan's runs on Detective with Chuck Dixon. When he took over on covers (from Kelley Jones), this one always struck me as James Bond-esque:

Yep, The Thing is a famous pre-code horror comic mainly because of the Ditko art and covers (which are great!). I bought the hardcover collected editions of the series, but they were just average at best (I guess I'm spoiled by EC's pre-code horror comics, nothing else comes close).

I've this saved in my "misc" file for awhile, and this seems like a good time to post it. Assuming the info is accurate, this shows the original Jack Davis drawing for the cover, which was "toned down".

Wow nice, I've seen some original uncensored EC covers (including the infamous Vault of Horror #32) but have never seen this one, and I've been a big EC geek since I was a teen.

Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

Okay, not the most exciting Jonah Hex cover, but this is probably one of my all-time favorite Jonah Hex stories. Believe the cover hype, not just one of the more incredible shoot-out sequences in a Hex comic, but in many a comic book title. Just a really flipping cool shootout that if done correctly in a show/film would be one that would get you talking about how cool it was. I put a spoiler tag up because of the size of the image.
Spoiler:





ETA: This is from my personal collection. Hard to believe this comic came out in 1980 and is now over 40(!) years old. It is in great condition, as there was a period of time when I could afford to chase down better condition copies of Jonah Hex issues that I already owned.

Superman's new power is celebrating Pride Month??

I have that issue, by the way.

This Ed Hannigan/Dick Giordano cover for JONAH HEX #87 has always been a favorite.

That is a wonderfully spooky Sub-Mariner cover.

Also, yes...nice Jonah Hex cover will travel.

Regarding the request to post some interior shoot out scene pages, I was hoping to avoid doing the work of carefully opening my copy to take some photos by finding a digital copy on-line that I could purchase and then just copy some page screenshots into this thread, but it looks like the original Bronze Age run of Jonah Hex is not on Comixology/Amazon Digital yet (at least I could not find a copy to legally download).

I hope to get to this task one of these days.

Damn, that's a pretty risque cover for a code-approved comic from the 80s, nice!
