Lady Luck

[Enlarge Here]

One of those odd page fillers in comics, in this case in the middle of The Spirit book. Also created by Will Eisner, but generally with input from other people for variety(in this case Klaus Nordling).

A century old, and still mesmerizing.

Icemen Cometh

Approved by the comics code? Oh, won't they think of the children?!?
(I can't help but feel I've seen this before; sorry if any doubling of posts material)

Elementary, My Captain

[Enlarge Here]

Literature upon literature, a titan against a titan. Also, an interesting read
(the climax from Captain America Comics #10, 1942 where they stole from whatever literature they felt like).

Burp Twerp (insert)

We had quite a run of illustration there. Always nice to try something different. But also nice to do another thing(or go back) to appreciate the other. So, here's a funny by good old Jack Cole.

Score of the rings

Heard this on the radio while driving. Bakshi is a figure of controversy, and few, if any, rank higher than his adaption of the cult Lord of the Rings book. But, despite some flaws, I find it an engaging film (and at times it reminds me of the art direction of Prince Valet). One area where it definitely succeeds, and I don't think I've ever heard anyone compliment, is the score by the great Leonard Rosenman. Definitely shreds the Howard Shore score, by a mile. Enjoy this playlist and tell me if you agree.
