Price Guide Peek-A-Boob!


Bill Ward's way with drawing curvaceous women is unmatched in the comic book world. His bodacious and bosomy babes are immediately recognizable and on this early Overstreet Price Guide cover, they are very much in audacious evidence. Below is a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at his creative process as it shows this memorable cover in the midst of being created.


I noticed all the girls stay in their relative places and Sheena is the comic book babe who gets added. It's fantastic to get a look at these works-in-progress, something we will never get a chance to see with modern artists who logically but sadly use computers. The old world though offers us these treasures still.

    1. She's very nice indeed. I was always one who thought Cracked was maybe just a bit better than MAD when it came to pure artistic ability. That's hard to say when MAD had Drucker, Aragones, Jaffee, and others, but Cracked always came across because of the awesome John Severin and guys like Ward as a more energetic package.

  2. When i was reading Mad and Cracked in the late 80s/ early 90s Cracked always seemed to be second rate. I'd buy it from time to time but it was never as funny as Mad
