Marie's take on things|
Here's the cover from NOT BRAND ECCH# 10, October 1968. It's worth taking a moment to study at the larger scale. Marie Severin's pencilling never appealed to be on straight strips -- it lacked solidity and any feeling of weight or impact. But her humorous art and little caricatures always made me smile. Check out her version of the Lizard (under Spider-Man's left arm), he's kinda endearing. There's a lot of good stuff here, from the Silver Surfer's shower cap to Aunt May looking bilious to Tony Stark hiding inside his armor.

Classic covers, with a spin|
From March 1960, THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD# 28. It's hard to imagine today what a jolt of pleasant surprise seeing this comic must have given a youngster. Long before the Interenet and well before organized fandom, kids didn't know weeks or months ahead of time what was going to be published. There was the delight of the unexpected that's hard to recapture today. Adding to the novelty here was that the Flash was still a new character and that the Green Lantern had only appeared a few times in tryouts, he didn't even have his own series yet. Aquaman had long been a back-up feature limited to a few pages a month and the Martian Manhunter had the same drawback. In fact, I think the Manhunter had only become publicly known a short time earlier; before that, he had been a secret crimefighter working mostly while invisible. Wonder Woman was actually the veteran of the group, established in her own comic that had been running for twenty years. In fact, since the concept of Earth-Two had not been established, readers who knew a little about comics history could reasonably think this was the same Wonder Woman who had belonged to the Justice Society in ALL-STAR COMICS (which itself had folded ten years earlier.)
The second illustration by Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema is from a 2004 issue of Roy Thomas' ALTER EGO. It seems to be speculating what might have happened had Marvel revived the All Winners Squad (retroactively called the Invaders) instead of DC coming up with the Justice League. It's an appealing concept and it may be my imagination, but Starro seems a bit perplexed by the situation ("I just can't win!")The story goes that Marvel (or Atlas, at the time) publisher Martin Goodman wanted Stan Lee to come up with a super-hero team comic because JUSTICE LEAGUE was a hit. But, being the loose cannons they were, Stan and Jack Kirby developed a new title that broke a lot of genre conventions. No costumes or secret identities, a lot of agita and in-group squabbling, more physical brawling than the DC style. Whether they expected it or not, Lee and Kirby started major trends of their own. Again, the second cover from that issue of ALTER EGO pulls the old switcheroo.

Squaddies and Saturday mornings|
The squat-bodied Marvel equivalent of the Super Friends started airing last week, with the awesomely named pilot "And Lo... a Pilot Shall Come!" The premise is apparently: saving Superhero City and a MacGuffin sword-fragment-of-the-week from Doctor Doom's Lethal Legion of cartoon-villainy that lives right next door in Villainsville.
A couple highlights: MODOK and Abomination fighting over superhero-Mortal Kombat, Hulk hitchhiking, surprise Doombots, and bringing in this guy in the second episode:

The ginchiest series comes to a close|
Madman Atomic Comics holds a special place in my heart. It's just about the only title I follow that I can't blame scans_daily for, after all, so, #17, it's final issue, marks a pretty sad date for me. To make matters worse, Wednesday Comics ended this week, too, meaning I won't get my Allred fix again until whenever I, Zombie comes around (no date given yet, which makes it January at the earliest. they're building a backlog right now, which is perfectly understandable given the delays MAC's gone through; three months between the last two issues!)
Anyway, I figured I'd share the story from the last two issues.
(don't worry mods, this splash's from the June issue)
