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.

@the420bandito Actually, Smokey was born in '44, during the GA. Danny Blaze is indeed an interesting character who meets CCA fire codes, but kinda misses the mark as a GA Torch bearer.

Nevertheless, I'll give Danny positive feedback for helping to extinguish the raging fire against comics in the pre-code era.

Speaking of torch bearers, here's another classic Schomburg HT war cover with loads of detail...

This is the nineteen hundred forty-first post (1941) in the GA thread!
In honor of that number, I'm posting a classic S&K cover from 1941!

I figured someone would pick up on this idea and beat me to the nineteen hundred forty-second post, but since the opportunity has presented itself, here's a classic GA Alex Schomburg cover for 1942 ...

Okay, before calling it a night, I'm gonna try and stretch this to nineteen hundred forty-three! As this is post number 1943 it's Vital to get something special in here. For this iconic comic post I'm going with Jack Cole's one shot solo tryout book for Plastic Man. This would eventually become a second tryout book followed by a continuing series with #3...

Still no one jumping in with GA books matching year & post numbers? Okay, here's post number 1944 and a July issue to boot! This awesome Schomburg cover produced for Harvey is the Church copy (issued for July, 1944). It also anticipated the infamous WMD "death ray" cover Alex created for Timely's Marvel Mystery a year later as the war was drawing to a close...

To follow that'n up, here's post number 1945, the aforementioned Alex Schomburg "death ray" over NYC cover for the August 1945 issue of Marvel Mystery Comics...




Also, as a bonus, Alex's original gouache recreation of that 1945 cover, the centerpiece of my Timely collection...

@the420bandito Well done, bandits!

To follow that for post number 1947 I'm going for a strong female leading character in Fox's first issue of Phantom Lady. This is the 9.0 "D" copy of the somewhat sexier 1947 revived series originally produced in Quality's Police Comics...

Probably the oldest comic (1947) that I own at the present time. She looks pretty good for over 70-years old!

Two more late classic covers for the nineteen hundred fifty-third post in the GA thread. 1953 was a good year for EC comics, and these Gaines File Copies sport covers by Feldstein and Wood not to mention great stories and art inside...

1954 is the last year before CCA censorship changed the GA landscape. In honor of the nineteen hundred fifty-fourth post and the recent passing of comic legend Steve Ditko, here's my final tie-in of post number and publication date. The Thing #14 is dated 6/54...

I have recently purchased a small lot of GA comics. A lot of the comics are high grade. The OO has written his name on the front cover. Looks like Raymond L. Sheets.

Just wish to see if this name ring a bell to anyone.

Well, the CCA stamp and all new stories tag pretty much removes the book from the GA, but it's a sweet early SA book nonetheless.
