    I just got this piece in the mail today, so I took a quick snapshot. It's a Jack Davis strip that was published in MAD Magazine in 1981. I think he's one of the greatest comic artists of all time, so I'm really excited to have this.

    Love Mad magazine. Nice Davis piece. Mort Drucker used to live on the north shore of Long Island back in the late 90's early 2000's. Think he still does. When I was in printing back then we did a few 4 color proofs for him. Wish I would have gotten the chance to deliver the finished product to him. I would have volunteered to go on the road that day

    Closest I can come to a Mad genius (see what I did there) is a page of Marvel's What If!? drawn by Marie Severin.

    That's fantastic! It's pretty wild how many different styles of characters she's doing just on that one page. That butler dude in the bottom left panel looks like wandered in from a MAD comic to me for sure. Very cool piece.

    These are celebrating there 32nd Birthday tomorrow. Walt drew these for me whilst promoting X-Men/Titans at my friends comic store. It was the first of 3 signings my friend would have Walt out for:




    I can't believe it's been 32 years. The speed and accuracy that Walt drew these with was absolutely AMAZING. Made me a fan for life. I've said it before...Walt is the most genuine and nicest people you will ever meet. Best thing is that he still as much a fan as he is an artist in the comic industry.

    Love Simonson's work, and he seems so nice in his interactions on his Facebook appreciation group. Seems to answer every question. How can anyone not be a fan.

    Not my latest. I've had this for about 2 - 3 years and found it today while trying to put up some industrial shelving in one of the rooms in the house. I acquired this from a person that worked for Murphy Anderson's Graphics Company. They did all the pre-press for Deluxe. I completely forgot that I had this. I had purchased a 4 color Separation of Wally Wood's Thunder Agents for #1. I already had the #2 which I have posted here before. Still in the mailer it was sent I see that there is what looks like original art 12 x 17 roughly. Pull it out and I didn't remember winning 2 things from the same seller. One of a couple of things I want to get signed by George before he stops doing Comic Cons at the end of the year. It's not an original art cover...but it is a Mechanical Cover which is what is used when they would shoot camera shots of original art and then output them to 4 color film from which they would make the printing plates from. It's a production pieces that is the same size as the original art 11 X 17. Usually it was a 70 - 80% camera shot so that it would be resized to the sized of a comic book. Anyway, here it is. Sorry for the camera shot...hoping to get the flatbed scanner that scans 12 x 18 fixed this year. Parts are hard to find:

    Only recently have I had the chance to take a pic of this one. Probably had it a couple of years now. Wish my old industrial scanner was working to really pic up the great likeness of the band.

    The Lovin' Spoonful by John Rosenberger. Artist for the Archies Comic called The Jaguar. Started off as something done at Archie and was never used. Found its way over to DC and DC was supposed to use it in a Romance title and never used it. Originally done in 1967:
