Human Torch 23, 1948

Human Torch 23, 1948

A classic postwar robot cover! Total distortion of scale, but dramatic and exciting artwork with great colors. Schomburg is considered by some collectors to have been the best robot artist. (Yes some people actually collect only comics that have robots on the cover!)

Schomburg's most famous robot 
cover is the classic Startling 49.
I believe this highly sought-after 
cover is the inspiration for Bender 
the robot on Matt Groening's  
Futurama
cartoon!


Nameless robot


Bender

Separated at birth?
