Description
Celebrating the most iconic symbol of a classic comic book—its arresting cover art—this album gathers 176 outstanding examples from the Golden Age of comics, focusing on the years 1933–1945. These are the images that made kids part with their hard-earned dimes: square-jawed heroes wading into a nest of gun-toting villains to save the girl; inhuman scientists preparing to experiment on hapless victims; bloodthirsty shootouts between soldiers or rival gangs; and even Bugs Bunny planting a big, embarrassing kiss on Porky Pig. Here are vivid, full-sized reproductions of pristine covers from artists like Carl Barks, Charles Biro, Jack Cole, Reed Crandall, Will Eisner, Bill Everett, Lou Fine, Walt Kelly, and Jack Kirby.
