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.

Jesse Santos, RIP

This announcement is a bit late. I am sad to report that Jesse Santos has passed away. Jesse was born in the Philippines and drew for several of the very earliest native Filipino comic books. He later moved to the US and drew many popular comics for Gold Key. An obituary can be found here:

Dan Adkins, RIP

Dan Adkins passed away a little more than two weeks ago. Dan was a top-notch inker and a talented penciler. He worked for Marvel, DC, and many other comic book publishers over the course of his career. Dan collaborated with Wally Wood and also produced illustrations for pulp magazines.

Christine Lyttle/Christine Smith, RIP

We lost another Golden Age artist. Christine Elizabeth Lyttle passed away on March 27, 2013.

Christine Lyttle, using her married name Christine Smith, first worked for Western Printing and Lithography, the company that produced comics for both Dell and Whitman publishing companies. At Western, Lyttle wrote and drew for titles such as Little Lulu, Roy Rogers, Tarzan, and Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Almanac, Silly Symphonies and Sleeping Beauty.

$97K… Seriously?

Some website called Doo Web Rank that ranks web site traffic says my samuelsdesign.com domain name is worth $97,076.

Wow, that’s a lot more than I would have guessed.

I’m not sure how accurate this estimate is but If anyone wants to buy my domain and web site for that kind of money please let me know!
