"Another of St. John's late titles was Do You Believe in Nightmares, which ran for 2 issues in 1957-58 (cover/indicia date). The GCD says stories in Do You Believe in Nightmares "were originally produced for Charlton editor Al Fago,…"
"Atom-Age Combat #1 (St. John, 1958)
This was the second St. John title with this name. The earlier one ran for 5 issues in 1952-53. The present comic was the only St. John issue of the second series, but the title was continued…"
"When did the Silver Age start? There's no clean answer, because it didn't arrive everywhere at once. It’s often said to have started with the Flash's debut in Showcase #4 in 1956, but in some respects DC’s Silver Age goes…"
"Danny Blaze #2 (Charlton, 1955)
The stories in this issue seem to be by the same artist as last time. I thought the art more consistent. The stories still have a newspaper strip style, but it's most in evidence in the first story, where there…"
"Danny Blaze #1 (Charlton, 1955)
This was a title about a fireman that ran two issues. This issue has three stories featuring the character.
The writing and art style remind me of newspaper strips. It wouldn't surprise me if the content came…"
"The earlier covers are old-style DC covers. DC's cover style changed in the mid-60s. Early Silver Age DC covers tell a story, and are wordy and restrained. The mid-60s ones are sensational. They show an action scene, use more exciting…"
"The GCD says Carmine Infantino's layout credit for #119 is from a letters column. He regularly did layouts for DC covers in the late 60s/70s. The cover-style changed with #117, so it could be he laid out all the covers from that point. I…"
"Since the Silver Age began with the Flash's debut in Showcase #4 in 1956, the changes in the industry in the early 60s represent the end of the Silver Age. The debut of the Fantastic Four marks the beginning of the Bronze Age. The proof: the…"
"I've got that one! The cover was by Cardy. I think he didn't draw them again until he did the cover for Teen Titans Annual No. 1, 1967 Issue in 1999.
The GCD tells me he subsequently drew a character profile for Silver Age Secret…"
"Medusa's power wouldn't be useful for much. The comics get around it by ignoring the point that whenever she lifts something she's supporting it through her neck. Also, unless she can extend her hair at will, she shouldn't have…"
"Some superheroes have powers like that: not very useful for a supervillain fighter, but potentially useful in some line of work. Being immune to fire wouldn't help you fight the Sandman, but you'd make a great fireman."
"I've resumed reading their second Showcase. The big problems is the action scenes are frenetic and badly thought out. When the issues are mostly action scenes they're hard to bear.
I speculated the cover #104 was drawn after the…"
"Elasti-Girl married Mento in The Doom Patrol #104. The issue is terribly put-together: she jilts him half-way through, and he marries him at the end. According to the GCD pt 1 "was originally completed to be a stand-alone story, ending with…"
Henry K has asked me to relay an invitation to you: I'd appreciate it if you could let Luke Blanchard, Phillip Portelli, and anyone else who posted in my "NEW GODS", "WESTERNS" and "BIBLE" threads know about my KIRBY LAND group.
After a Jack Kirby Fan Group forum was hijacked by an unscrupulous individual on Facebook, Henry began his own forum, titled "Kirbyland" where he, and like-minded individuals continue to promote their beliefs on Facebook.
He wanted you to know.
