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.

Man Comics’ Cover Artist?

Today I got an interesting e-mail from Tom Ripson, who speculates that the cover art below is by John Romita Sr.

Tom writes: “I’ve seen some work credited to John Romita on some Captain America stories from the early 50’s that looked very similar to the art on those covers. His 50’s work was apparently quite different than his 60’s art when he was encouraged to draw in the more Kirby-esque Marvel house style of that period.”

I checked the always informative Grand Comics Database Project to see what data they had to offer, but no cover art credits were listed for this issue.

Digging a little deeper, I pulled the comic out of storage, and paging through it I noticed the cover art looks a lot like the interior artwork for the title story “Bring Back a Red”. While the Grand Comics Database Project had no data for the cover art, it did credit Bill Savage for the story art on “Bring Back a Red”.

Upon reflection, I think Bill Savage probably did the cover art, as well as the interior story spotlighted on the cover.

I welcome comments from anyone with an opinion on the subject.
