Cool Stuff: Original Comic Art!

Happy Boxing Day! So, did you get anything as cool as this stuff under your Christmas tree this year? If not, never fear... I'll keep bringing the geekery here, and even if you can't own the original art, you can see these scans or photos!

  1. It's sad to see Cap calling Mozo a "slant-eyed slug" -- and I say that even having read a few CM stories with Billy's houseboy Steamboat in them! But Tuska at least gets some points here for drawing the Asian character as recognizably human as opposed to some of the grotesque cariacatures seen in other comics of the era...including Steamboat, for that matter.

  2. Yeah, I know, RAB...

    All the racial stuff in the old Cap stories was mentioned for the longest time as one of the reasons we wouldn't be seeing a reprint of the "Monster Society of Evil" serial (although I'd imagine if the Shazam Archives keep going, that will come up sooner or later, if it hasn't already).
