Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #606 - Comic Book Cover Gallery 2017 pt.4

Hi Mom,

I am behind schedule again, so this is a quickie without as much preamble. I will strive for original content tomorrow.

As always total credit for posting these comic book covers and the text about them to Ted Ignacio over at Pencil Ink blog. Click any of the links on this page to check out that blog.

I like that there's an Eerie cover as I just posted about that great magazine, here:


First, the text that goes with the banner image.

Green Lantern Green Arrow #3 - Neal Adams cover & reprints

Green Lantern Green Arrow v1 #3, 1983 - Collecting the groundbreaking series from the 1960s-1970s, this deluxe edition reprints some of the best work by writer Denny O' Neil and artist Neal Adams. The stories in this issue were originally publishedGreen Lantern v2 #80 and Green Lantern v2 #81. Adams provides a new cover, a revising the original theme of overpopulation. This is number 3 of 5 Green Lantern Green Arrow issues with Adams art and/or covers.

Eerie v3 #71 - Bernie Wrightson art

Eerie v3 #71, 1976 - Bernie Wrightson's penchant for jack-o-lanterns is well documented, particularly throughout the bronze age. As in other examples, this illustration nicely combines both elements of humor and horror. Note the sublime quality of the fine lines of hay in the background. These contrast directly against the most graphic rendition of the figures (especially the main character). As with many other bronze age works, Wrightson demonstrates his mastery of depicting light and shadow. Other artists in this issue include Jose Ortiz, Paul Neary, Luis Bermejo, Gonzalo Mayo and Esteban MarotoSee today's posts or more Wrightson or Eerie issues.

The Cat v2 #1 - Wally Wood art & cover (1st bronze age Cat)

(Beware The Claws of) The Cat v2 #1, 1972 - Containing the first appearance and origin of this feminist super-heroine, this premiere issue also boasts an exceptional cover by Wally Wood. The multi-scene background is complex without being chaotic, thanks to his organized layout and the monochromatic red palette. The Cat's image on the lower right similarly repeats itself on the following splash page in bold dramatic form. Wood's story inks showcase his fine craftsmanship and penchant for drawing the female figure. Kudos also to Marie Severin's fine pencilling job. Years later, this character would several transform herself into the were-woman Tigra, passing on this identity and costume to another heroine. This is number 1 of 1 Cat issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Cat orWood issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.








Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
