Defenders v2 #110 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin Defenders v2 #110, 1982 - Replicating the story's opening scene, the cover portrays the Devil-Slayer trapped in the Negative Zone. Jim Starlin, known for his creative renditions of outer space (among other things) places the characters against a backdrop of colorful planets.

Amazing World of DC Comics #7 - Neal Adams art

Amazing World of DC Comics #7Amazing World of DC Comics v1 #7, 1975 - Focused on Superman and his history in comics and other media, the numerous articles should be enough to delight any fan. Neal Adams supples the Superman art for the back cover, superimposed against a photograph. It's not one of his better efforts compared to other works in the same era. Other artists in this issue include Curt [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Blazing Action Out of the Rip Roaring West

"Join the Stampede Roundup"Lone Rider Televiewer comic book ad, 1950s - Most likely a plastic box with a roll of pictures inside, seen through a plastic magnifying eyepiece.

House of Secrets #104 House of Secrets v1 #104, 1973 - When a professional hitman accidentally kills a bystander, the victim's ghost returns to haunt him. Unfortunately, the killer doesn't scare easily. Pencilled by Nestor Redondo, the artwork is typically splendid.

Strange Worlds #6 - Wally Wood cover

Wally Wood Strange Worlds v1 #6, 1952 - Though often credited with the entire cover, Wally Wood seems to have only contributed the drawing of the female astronaut. One of his earliest collaborators, Joe Orlando, most likely drew the rest. They shared a similar stylistic approach, which made attribution sometimes difficult. On closer inspection, I think Wood either pencilled and inked the [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Droids #5 - Al Williamson art

Droids #5Droids v1 #5, 1986 - Al Williamson continues his run on this Star Wars-related series, providing inks over Mary Wilshire's pencils. Unfortunately, there is no discernible improvement in the finished artwork. This is ironic given Williamson's stellar reputation for science fiction comics.

Amazing Spider-man #219 - Frank Miller cover

Frank Miller Amazing Spider-man v1 #218, 1981 - Roughened up and angry, an imprisoned Peter Parker glares at us from the inside. Frank Miller spaces the bars a little too widely, but enough to convey the idea. Parker's alter ego is prominent but faded to suggest an internal anguish. There is a beauty to Miller's simplicity, which also intensifies the scene.

Thor #261 - Walt Simonson art

Thor #261 Thor v1 #261, 1977 - Lady Sif and the Warrriors Three join Thor in his attempt to breach the wall around the Doomsday Star. In his second issue of the series, Walt Simonson's pencils are almost unrecognizable due to Ernie Chan's inks.

Frank Miller Lone Wolf and Cub v1 #12, 1987 - Busy, detailed and immensely colorful, Frank Miller's cover is among his most vibrant on the series.

Sally Visits the Easy Bake Oven Factory

"Greatest girl's toy since dolls"Easy Bake Oven Factory comic book ad, 1970s - Despite promoting the domestication of girls, the storytelling is decent for a toy ad.

Detective Comics #513 - Don Newton art

Detective Comics v1 #513, 1982 - Unknown to a panicked Gotham City, the Batman is imprisoned by his old foe Two-Face. Don Newton's artwork more or less meet expectations, though his layouts seem a little sloppier than usual. Same for inker Frank Chiaramonte, whose delineations could be clearer. He does gets credit for maintaining the integrity of Newton's pencils. Other artists in this DC copper [Author: Ted Ignacio]
