This month is going to be another ragtag one, so expect a lot of different things (some weird movie and comic book reviews for instance). Parody and spoof will carry the month I think. (But plans might change.) One focus will be the late great Jack Davis.
When I think of Jack Davis though the first image which comes to my mind is his simply stunning Frankenstein poster which was so often advertised in the pages of many a comic magazine. I used to want one of those frantically, but back then two dollars might as well have been two hundred dollars. So, as with so many of those delightful old fashioned ads, I could only stare and drool at the image's magnificence. I still think that Davis, more than any artist, captured the resolute sadness of the Frankenstein creature.
In honor of the great Jack Davis, let me use my meager forum to showcase some of my personal favorite covers by the great cartoonist, which will appear daily in the "Favorite Covers" section.
Looking forward to a fun month as the long hot summer comes to a close.
