Spectacular Spider-man v2 #17 - John Byrne cover

John Byrne Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-man v2 #17, 1978 - Not long after his stint on The Champions, John Byrne's cover features one of the founding members, the Angel. More visceral than graceful, his artwork comes through despite the domineering masthead and clutter of word balloons. Other artists in this issue include Sal Buscema and Dave Hunt. This is number 1 of 5 Spectacular [Author: Ted F]

Strange Tales #156 - Jim Steranko art

Strange Tales v1 #156 featuring Nick Fury & Doctor Strange, 1967 - Nick Fury infiltrates the enemy's headquarters on Hydra Island, discovering one of his oldest foes has returned. Jim Steranko's inaccurate perspective on the opening splash gives a false sense of scale, yet the drawing itself is reminiscent of 1950s EC comics. Most interesting are the pages showing Hydra HQ, drawn in the artist's [Author: Ted F]

My Own Romance #47 - non-attributed Matt Baker art

My Own Romance v1 #47, 1955 - An aspiring actress longs for her small town beau, voicing her regret in an unsent letter. Matt Baker uses her own handwriting for narration, nicely personalizing the story. Readability is sometimes affected, but the overall effect makes it stand out from the usual romantic fare.

Gardening gives time for quiet contemplation as one engages with the Earth and God's creation. The other day, as I was transplanting seedlings from peat pots into the ground, I noticed that even though (in theory) the roots of the seedlings were supposed to be able to push through the peat pots, in most cases they had not.  Instead, as the tiny roots reached the wall of the pot, they turned and went a different direction, back inside the pot. A healthy plant with room to grow will stretch its ro...
