I was snooping around these here internets and came across this article (http://www.acomics.com/cover2.htm) listing what the author believes to be the greatest 25 comic book covers of all time.

While it's pretty hard to argue with some of those choices and nearly impossible to narrow it down to 25 in the first place, I think there are some pretty big omissions and I'm going use that as an excuse to post some pictures now.

Good calls. That TALES FROM THE CRYPT might become my left arm tattoo eventually.

The guys list is good but only one LB Cole? One Wolverton? He tried to be all inclusive, which is nearly impossible! But still, good choices for sure!

And no Eisner? No Eisner, no deal, that's what I say.

That Weird Mysteries brain removal cover is super dope. I don't think I've seen that one before.

William Stout did that cover. I got in trouble for having that comix when I was a teen. Maw found it.

All three of those should have been on that list.

Wow... diggin' that HARD BOILED!

Ian Jane
03-31-2011, 04:56 PM
Hard Boiled was phenomenal. So much pornographic twisted detail in that series - and it was big!

Nolando
04-01-2011, 11:33 AM
Huge! And I met Darrow at a PDX comic con right after it came out. He had a bowl of candy at his booth and was very friendly. Rather incongruous to the imagery he so richly detailed.

Nolando
04-01-2011, 11:35 AM
Oh and I think that HB cover is where Raimi got the shot from The Quick and The Dead (for Lance Henriksen's demise), too. The timing of this coming out and then that shot of the movie had to be more than coincidental.

Ian Jane
04-01-2011, 11:43 AM
You might be right. I wouldn't have thought that if you hadn't brought it up, but yeah, that would be an odd coincidence.

I like the front and back version of the HB cover:

Twisted Tales, and a lot of the Pacific EC style throwbacks, were awesome. It's amazing no one has collected them into trades.

According to wikipedia, it was former Elvis/Steve McQueen girlfriend Barbara Leigh, who was in Junior Bonner, Boss Nigger and Pretty Maids All In A Row.

That Spider-Man 6-part story was kick ass. Death Rattle....how could I forget about that? Cool book. I loved those horror comics the best. That Vault of Horror is funky, The most bizarre part is the fact that everyone on the subway is a cracker.

Ian Jane
04-04-2011, 05:08 PM
I hadn't noticed that! I remember reading the Kraven's Last Hunt storyline when it was new, picking it up on the shelf at Memory Lane Comics in NF and buying it for Zeck's art. It freaked me out as a kid. Classic stuff. Death Rattle wasn't as consistent as some of the other 80s indy horror anthologies but it was pretty rad nonetheless. The covers were always cool.

That last one looks like Robert Burns art. I didn't have that issue. Was it Death Rattle or Twisted Tales the had a story about some hunters that got stranded in their cabin and ended up eating the dog, which turned out to be a false memory. Instead they ate the terribly racist rendition of a black guy they used as their "hound dog".

Ian Jane
04-04-2011, 07:58 PM
I remember that story and I think it was Twisted Tales but don't take that as gospel.

And it's Charles Burns art. That's probably who you meant.

Todd Jordan
04-04-2011, 09:25 PM
Yeah him. Charles Burns. That story made me feel gross. More so the notion of eating the dog than the cannibalism.

That Hell-Rider comic cover rules.

Hell-Rider was a Skywald publication. In their early years as a Warren competitor, Skywald produced some really awesome magazines. Here are some choice selections from their early period -- before they bought into their own hype and gave the insufferable egomaniac Al Hewetson carte blanche with their brand name. Still, those early years were really something...

Check out that sweet Jeff Jones Nightmare cover

It was difficult to impress upon him how much I've liked his work since I was in my early 20s, but oh well. Super nice and massively talented cat.

Scott's a real nice, laid back guy. He used to frequent a video store that I managed back in the 80's (around the time of his work for Pacific). He was a big fan of really obscure horror flicks and I enjoyed recommending several to him. Got to play a game of Risk with him and one of his writing buds once. Trivia no one cares about: Scott's snacks of choice that night: Mountain Dew and Mr. Goodbar.

Growing up, my best friend's dad was an art teacher. This friend was obsessed with Moon Knight and for Christmas one year, his dad did up a really cool full color oil painting for him and framed it. It hung on his wall until he went away to college. I was pretty jealous of that. I was lucky if my dad could draw a stick figure.

I've never done this before, but what the hell..

When I was a lot younger, I used to draw comic book and magazine covers that I liked a lot. It's hard translating color to many shades of black, white and grey! I wasn't that good, but I like to think I got better as I went along. I was especially proud of that Heavy Metal cover, even though it remains unfinished to this day.
