Superman's girlfriend....Wonder Woman!!!

I'm thinking that this cover was drawn by Dick Dillin and inked by Vince Colletta....if I'm wrong please tell me and I will give proper credit. :)
Yep...I like's my Lois Lane comics yes I do....I was like 7 or 8 when I got this one. From the Luncheonette across the Highway from where I lived in Roosevelt. " Moe's " Now...I was not supposed to cross the highway but...ut was a Sunday afternoon and there were absolutely no I ran across really quickly. I got inside and I began to peruse the wall of comics they had. I saw all sorts of cool comics that I would have rather had...but having only 25 cents I had to make a decision. So I picked Lois had Supes on the cover and a race car. lol

BUT...after a while I began to examine the art very closely and suddenly Wonder Woman was my main focus. The turn of her hip and the shape of her legs. Yeah...I know it's a drawing but I was 7 so that is the closest I had to a girlie mag. BUT I had no idea at the time why I was attracted. Now it all makes sense. This is one of my favorite covers.

EERIE!!! DAX the Damned

Not only is this one of my favorite covers but it's also one of my favorite posters. There were several EERIE repro posters put out about 25 years ago and I managed to get this particular poster. Being that I love all things BARBARIAN!! I saw it at a place in HUNTINGTON NY called "JUST KIDS NOSTALGIA" maybe 16 years ago. The artwork is by the brilliant SANJULIAN.

My favorite LONE RANGER covers

# 24
# 95

When I was about 11 my Dad took me out for a hair-cut at a flea market. This place was an old Department store in West Islip NY. It was called HAMPTONS. It was right next to KORVETTES later on that place also went under and then that place became KEY LARGO a night club that had country line dancing and live country music acts like Kenny Rogers and Willie Nelson. Then that place became CHEVY'S Bel-air cafe..a dance club that was a highly successful meat market. Like if you ever were in the mood to get laid you can go there and hump my ex-fiance...that sssslut. Anyway....When it was still an indoor Flea market My Dad took me for a hair cut there. Some dude set up a little closed in and very claustrophobic barber shop all the way in the back left rear corner of the Place. That's where I got my HULK poster I mention in an earlier post. As I told you all once before most of the comics here on this blog are moments in time frozen in my mind forever. The Gold Key reprint marked as the LONE RANGER # 24 was in the barber shop among all the magazines. I was captivated by the painted cover and would just stare at it for long periods of time. The hot air balloon the situational action occuring it was certainly a great way to spark a kids imagination. It was a while before I had ever come across another LONE RANGER book and number 95 was it. I love the way this fella painted the Ranger....he looks like Robert Culp ( rest in peace Bob ) I found # 95 at a little comic shop in Deer Park NY called the World of Fantasy ( No it was no a porn store ) They sold comics. It was more than likely my very first 10 cent book added into my collection ever. I still have these comics....and I love them. These two comics are my favorite LONE RANGER comic covers.

If anyone can clue me in to who the artists are I sure would appreciate it.
