I'm unable to disagree with you about that. Interestingly, the Grand Comics Database credits #213's cover to Carmine Infantino (pencils) and Dick Giordano (inks), not to Neal Adams, based on Julius Schwartz's editorial records.

Ah, sorry, poor wording on my part: I wasn't trying to credit #213 to Neal, only commenting on #215.

I wasn't trying to suggest you had misattributed #213, just that I had thought on first glance that they were both by Adams.

Well, I must admit, it doesn't look much like Infantino's usual style, either.

It's not often i see a brand new cover that immediately screams "classic" at me, but Frank Thorne on a retro Red Sonja definitely does...

I think I would have preferred it to have had retro colouring, but I'm glad to see Thorne is still in good form. He must be in his eighties now.

He's 83, apparently. And still working!

It's not a classic comic cover unless it features Wonder Woman sitting on an elephant's head Smile

Some nice ones, there. I read "the case of the disabled Justice League" quite recently. I suspect it would raise a few eyebrows, these days... Razz

That JLA story, written by Gardner Fox, was based on one written by Fox in All-Star Comics #27 during WWII.

I remember that one. 1990, I think. The sort of standalone, out of continuity story DC were just starting to get into doing again.

One of my favourite covers, since I was seven years old.

I think it might be the Demi Moore pregnancy cover, but I don't know.

The original:



Also, on the She-Hulk cover, note the bolding of the words "Fair" and "Vanity" in her word balloon.

From the same month as Byrne's She-Hulk cover, I prefer Greg Capullo and Harry Candelario's cover to Quasar #29.


The ever original Rob Liefeld provided a further homage five short years later.

I'd forgotten that Quasar cover! That was great!
