Comic Book Art
I grew up reading and collecting comics. One of the favourite comics in my collection was Space Mysteries #9 which was published in 1964 (when I was 11) and reprinted the entire issue from Planet Comics #73 (originally published in 1953 by Fiction House). Here are some pages. Click the image to see a larger version and then use magnify to read. I loved the Bill Benulis artwork on this 1953 story of an electronic brain gone mad: "Cerebex":Jack Able) perfectly compliments the spooky story. I loved this story so much when I was eleven! New Mutants #045 - Novenber 1986 The first comic to ever make me cry. The story is about a mutant artist who makes sculptures of pure light.
