What I found for $1.75

It's been a while since I updated the ol' blog with new art. I've been working on a commercial gig for the past month and there isn't much time to fit in my comics work unfortunately. The job is winding down though and I'm really excited to get back to business on my hacker comic.

In the meantime I wanted to share some gnarley finds that I came across at the Pittsburgh Comicon. I found a box full of treasures that were 25 cents.

First up is T.H.U.N.D.E.R agents 4 with some of Wally Wood's best superhero artwork. Another gem is a Dick Ayers penciled, Wood inked strip.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R Agents 18: This one is the best quarter I've ever spent. Picture these heavy hitters all sharing space between the same covers: Wally Wood, Reed Crandall, Steve Ditko, Chic Stone, and Ogden Whitney. Don't be jealous, I'll let you check it out if you ask nicely.

I don't study Carl Barks as much as I should so when I came across this issue of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories I had to snag it up. The Barks lead-off tale is charming as you may imagine. In comparison to the other stories in this issue Barks genius is very apparent, though, I'm not sure I theres a strip in here drawn by Walt Kelly.

I'm a huge fan of Joe Kuberts artwork so these Tarzan's were welcomed.

This issue of Tarzan is an older, Russ Manning illustrated issue that is probably a reprint of the daily strip. Look at this cover and tell me you wouldn't have scooped it up yourself!
So that closes out this post. Check in soon to see what cool Jack Kirby monster books I got for 25 cents at the con.
