Welcome to my gallery of classic comic covers. I've been collecting comic books for over 25 years and made this web site to share some of my favorite covers. All of the covers, with a very few exceptions, are (or were) from my personal collection. Have a question or a comment? E-mail me, my name's Ben.

Earl Norem, R.I.P.

I’m not sure how this flew under my radar, but I just learned that Earl Norem passed away in June of this year. Mr. Norem painted many wonderful covers for Martin Goodman’s line of “sweat mags” and Marvel’s magazine format comics. He was 92 years old.


Jay Scott Pike, R.I.P.

A very talented Golden Age and Silver Age comic book artist recently passed away.
Jay Scott Pike, 91, of Sarasota, FL died on September 13, 2015.

There is a nice obituary here:

“Scott Pike was born in Philadelphia in 1924. At the age of 16 he enrolled in the Art Students League in New York City. After a hitch in the Marine Corps he resumed his studies at Parsons School of Design in New York, at Syracuse University, and then at Ringling School of Art in Sarasota.

As his painting career evolved, illustration supported his growing family. Mr. Pike worked with both Marvel and DC comics and created covers for such magazines as Master Detective. He worked with advertising agencies in New York for clients such as Ford, Proctor & Gamble, TWA, and Pepsi Cola.

Mr. Pike’s work won many honors and he is well represented in collections both here and abroad. He is probably best known for his oils of exotic nudes. Portraits were also an important part of his painting career; He had over 150 commissioned portraits with subjects ranging from babies to bank presidents.”

Fred Kida, R.I.P.

I loved Fred’s artwork, especially for the Golden Age Air Fighters series. Haven’t added a new post to this blog for way too long. Sadly, death once again compels me to report. Many more names will be coming soon….
