13 and Jinx-Alan Mandel-1942
It's been a few years since we last featured 13 and Jinx but here they are again at last, as drawn by one of my favorite Golden Ager artists (discovered only because I started this blog!), Alan Mandel.

Walk the Plank-Len Wein-1982
Apparently this was thought to be the work of Rich Buckler with Dan Green until the story's writer, Len Wein, mentioned in an online interview with Tony Isabella that he had, in fact, drawn and inked it himself! I know he had done some art in his pre-pro fa...

Elvis Presley Presents
Other than his name and photo, this 2 page UK western from 1957 has less than nothing to do with Elvis. In fact. I can pretty much guarantee you that he never even knew it existed.

Kardak the Mystic Magician-Jim Phillips-1942
Kardak the Mystic Magician...as opposed to one of those NON-mystic magicians, I guess. This fella was yet another card-carrying member of the Mandrake clan.

Detective Comics Wall Hanging-1970s
I had forgotten that I had this pasteboard backed wall-hanging. There's no date but I recall getting it at Kidd's Bookstore in Cincinnati and they went out of business around the mid-seventies.

Ray Middleton?
Longtime readers will recall that I was convinced a while back that--in spite of the conventional wisdom--actor ray Middleton did NOT portray Superman at the 1940 Superman Day at the World's Fair. Now the estimable investigator  Ken Quatro  has found this s...

Seventeen Seventy Sick-Win Mortimer-1973
Here's a rarely seen MAD or more appropriately CRAZY-style parody of today's movie of the day, 1972's 1776. With all the patrick Henry and Thomas Paine jokes though (they aren't in the picture) one has to wonder if writer Marv Wolfman actually saw the film ...

Jimmy Olsen/Robin-Murphy Anderson-1970
Some gorgeous art on this late Weisinger-era story of Superman's Pal...or is it Batman's pal? Or both?? Bob Haney is his zany self as writer.

Boing, Boing!
What goes "Boing, Boiiiiing. Boingboingboing. Boink, boink?" For the last few weeks, we'd been hearing that occasionally in the Library. Thought it was something in one of several boxes in a corner but we moved those and took everything out. The noise left ...

Two Gun Birmingham
Even Charlie Chan dealt with gold mines and dude ranches in 1948's THE GOLDEN EYE, complete with series mainstay Mantan Moreland in cowboy drag.

Little Vinegar-Gay Comics-1947
Definitely some lively cartooning going on here with that checkerboard outfit lending itself well to all the shenanigans. The sound effects lettering is somewhat inspired as well.
