Witzend #12 - Wally Wood, Steve Ditko art

Witzend #12Witzend v1 #12, 1982 - Employing plenty of zipatone screens and patterns, Wally Wood's "Lunar Tunes" is oddly humorous. Despite being one of his last works before his death in 1981, the artwork is rich and textural. Steve Ditko's one pager of a would-be burglar fits within the same genre and level of effort. Gray Morrow's single page illustration of the Phantom is also noteworthy. [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Record Book of Famous Police Cases #nn - Matt Baker cover, Joe Kubert reprints

Matt Baker Record Book of Famous Police Cases v1 #nn (no number), 1952? - This one shot giant re-packages interiors from earlier St. John comics. Most likely, the contents vary.
