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.

CFA-APA article for issue #76: Good ol’ Humphrey

I’m a member in a comic and fantasy art fanzine known as CFA-APA, and I’ve just finished my submission for the next issue. It documents the popularity and decline of Humphrey Pennyworth, the oversize and super-strong pal of Joe Palooka.

The .pdf file of my article can be found here.

Frank Springer, R.I.P.

I am saddened to report that I just learned of comic artist Frank Springer’s death, at the age of 79. Rest in peace, Frank.

Russ Cochran Art Auctions “Go Internet”

I got a postcard from Russ Cochran’s Comic Art Auction announcing the end of their printed auction catalogs, and the move on-line to www.russcochran.com. If you’re not familiar with Russ, he’s the “Godfather” of comic book original art auctions. His mail-bid format auctions sold the EC comics original art archives “back in the day”, and were surely the inspiration for modern comic art auctions like those by Sotheby’s (R.I.P.), Heritage or Comiclink. While I love printed art auction catalogs, in my humble opinion this change was long overdue. Welcome to the 21st century, Russ!

Witches Tales #25, Manny Stallman art

I’ve recently added the cover to Harvey’s Witches Tales #25:

Witches Tales 25

The addition is in honor of my recent acquisition of artwork featured in this comic, namely Manny Stallman and John Giunta’s story “The Ticket”. You can see the wonderful original artwork in my CAF gallery here:
