Probably should post the follow-up issue of DMC (this is the Recil Macon ped. copy). #8 was also the last issue of Daring Mystery Comics. There would be a brief Daring Comics series featuring Timely's top tier characters), but as a try-out book, the series ended here. #8 also has the honor of being the last cover produced by Jack Kirby for Timely...

One of the coolest Timely war covers, Mystic Comics #7 has all the right stuff to make it a classic: bondage & torture, Hitler, a cobweb covered skeleton, a multi-armed knife wielding idol, and a Pandora's Box full of demons with the mighty Destroyer ready to open up a big can of whoop-ass...

nice book. Been looking for a high grade copy of #1, problem, likely pricey if I do find one. Here is one of my Red Ryder books I have.

Very nice pair!

My thoughts keep coming back to the line "Robin Hood, ...when knighthood was in flour."

Any idea who the artist might have been. Maybe somebody known or cool atleast?

I let my Google fingers do the walkin'. The answer to your question is (...drum roll please): Tony Sgroi and Russ Manning.

Cheers,

Respected? They were doing promotional comics for a flour company.

Anyway, here's the Wikipedia link on Russ Manning...

No one seems to be rooting for the HITs, even with three men on base and more strong hitters waiting in the dugout.

But I don't give up easily. Here are several more tasty books emphasizing Quaity...










All Lou fine or partially Lou Fine & Reed Crandall. Reed would take over the cover chores with HIT #18, making his own splash.

Bigger than life characters. When battling the Axis, Timely heroes rarely kept things in perspective. The enemy's stature was often diminished in size to reflect the pettiness of their ambitions!

Carrying forward the idea of supersized superheroes, in this Timely tour de force created by Alex Schomburg there's even a cool remote controlled robot, also oversized. Human Torch #23 pretty much has it all: angry robot doing mayhem, mad scientists bent on destruction, planes & trolley cars squashed, ...you name it, it's probably in that illustration somewhere!

One of my favorite non-war themed Schomburg covers of the era...

Continuing my earlier theme of covers featuring supersized heroes, we come to Captain America #57, with Cap & Bucky towering over small time criminals (emphasis on small)...

I think this one might be worth the time, money and effort to get cleaned, pressed and graded. Wonder Woman 68, from 1954.
