Ancient Cover Gallery

A few pre-Silver Age gems.

ADVENTURE COMICS #92, 1944. Look out behind you Sandman, it's a trap! Where's Sandy when you need him...

HEADLINE COMICS #44, 1951. Nice to see them cracking down on some of those white-collar criminals for a change. Very eye-catching covers on these old crime books. I like that lackey off to the left.

WARFRONT #29, 1956. Man, those Harvey war comics could get violent.

I can see how Kirby's style evolved into the cosmic style he had during his 60's Fantastic four period. You can see from these early covers that his trade mark way of drawing hands and clothes were coming about....
