Well, I'm going to dive right in and list some of the Filipino contingent from the 70's, who delivered some truly beautiful, jaw-dropping and, in at least one particular case, mind-bending artwork for DC's fantasy, horror, science fiction and war books, artists like...

Nestor Redondo
E.R. Cruz
Alex Nino

This link points to a great on-line resource for the artists from the Phillipines...

Don't forget about Robert Kanigher, Neo. Kubert's and Heath's contributions were entirely dependent on his wonderful scripts.

I owned some original art back in the 70's- I had a Kurt Schaffenberger page from a 1963 LOIS LANE, A Murphy Anderson page from a 1965 issue of SHOWCASE, a Gil Kane page from a 1974 SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN and A Curt Swan SUPERMAN daily newspaper strip from 1958.

DC's artists during the Silver Age had a more polished look than Marvel's, but I really like both.

Joe Kubert, for me, was always the best artist over at DC. His "Sgt. Rock", "Tor" and "Tarzan" books were gorgeous.

I'm also really, really fond of Jose Luis Garcia Lopez and Jim Aparo.

And I'm really big on Russ Manning. In fact, one of my favorite comic books--ever!--is MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER.

Dark Horse Comic reprinted Manning's MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER not long ago, and dabbled in his TARZAN books, but didn't do a major reprinting project. They did reprint all of Joe Kubert's TARZAN for DC, and there's a rumor floatin' about that they'll be doing the same for Marvel's thirty or so issues of JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS.

I still have the JOHN CARTER comics...well, well worth getting.

Some gorgeous artwork from Gil Kane and Rudy Nebres in those John Carter comics from Marvel...

DC's Tarzan books, in addition to having those awesome Joe Kubert drawn stories, were also launching pads for artists like Berni Wrightson, Mike Kaluta, Alan Weiss and many others, and also had artwork from the Redondo brothers.

For art i always loved Curt Swan's Aquaman. Mark Bright's Hal Jordan. Anything by Joe Kubert who was immense, particularly Sgt. Rock. Jim Aparo and Norm Breyfogle on Batman. Dan Jurgens on Superman. Adam Hughes did amazing Justice League stuff and Bart Sears on Justice League Europe. My favourite writer was the hilarious Keith Giffen who also had a brilliant run on Legion of Super Heroes.

Oh, though Sergio Aragone's Groo is probably my favourite - not DC though.

Haven't really read a comic in 13 years though.

i think the first comic i remember was a tarzan one where the baddie is crushed to death at the end by a giant snail against the inside of a cave or some rocks - weird. Also a Conan comic where his mate gets an arm chopped off and it gets possessed and he starts doing bad things, i think it might be an orangutan arm.

Menkle.

Since you've already mentioned Kubert and Heath, let me add that underrated Batman artist, Jim Aparo: (I've always liked his distinctive Batman)

"The Brave and the Bold" was my favorite comic book for quite a few years, due in no small measure to Jim Aparo, and the occasional issue draw by the wonderful Jose Luis Garcia Lopez.

I've always liked the "Regular-hero-and-guest-star" format of the book. Also really liked the "DC Comics Presents" title (Superman and guest), "Marvel Team-Up" (Spider-Man and guest) and "Marvel Two-in-One" (The Thing and guest).

Monday Mornin' Musings Department:

Sometimes the darnest images pop into your head while you're shavin'. Of all things,



popped into our cranium today for some truly unfathomable reason.

Now, we came along near the end of its original run but were strangely fascinated by writer Michael Fleischer's handle on the character.



Anyone else? ... eek
