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.

Weird Tales of the Future #4

weird tales of the future 4, basil wolverton

I’d like to share a cover with you that I didn’t deem worthy of addition to the gallery proper, but still deserved some exposure. I recently bought this copy of Weird Tales of the Future #4, a very popular comic from a series I’ve never owned a copy from until now. Nice as it is, I just don’t feel deserves the label “classic”. Still, it’s an interesting comic with partial cover art by the quirky Basil Wolverton.

The artwork depicts a scene from a story called “The Brain Bats of Venus” which was published in Mister Mystery #7 (put out by the same publisher, Aragon). The monsters are drawn by Wolverton, but the girl in the foreground is the work of another, anonymous, artist. Rumor has it, editor Stanley Morse needed cover art in a hurry so he did some cut-and-paste to create this cover “collage” combining the previously-published work of two different artists. (Odds are, neither artist got paid for their contributions). The interior art includes work by Wolverton, Tony Mortellaro, and Hy Fleishman.

UPDATE - Scott on the CGC chat boards let me know that the cover art was a cut and paste job from Weird Tales of the Future #3, not Mister Mystery #7. The cover artwork was pulled from Wolverton’s story “Nightmare World” in #3. Thanks Scott!
