I love Golden Age comics. The scarcity, the history, and artwork is what draws me in. So for #SchomburgSaturday
I present to you this Golden Age goodie. The Fighting Yank #9
My first Gerber 8. Only 11-20 copies exist worldwide according to the scarcity index. And once you do open the Photo Journal it is seen that where the Exciting Comics is supposed to be is left blank because of how scarce it is. It is also my first Nazi cover as well! I absolutely love the underwater art work along with The Black Terror hitting the breathing apparatus off to drown the Nazi. Love it! A big thank you to @thecryptofcovers
for working with me on this book. Couldn't have gotten this book without you my friend. I have one more book to post which is coming within the next day or so and then its time to pump the brakes on collecting temporarily to replenish the funds spent on books. Here it is guys! #cgc #nedor #excitingcomics #theblackterror #blackterror #schomburg #alexschomburg #xela #nazi #gerber
Brick Bradford 6. A Schomburg piece with a Canadian Publishing house. I got very close to moving this book a few times for well over what it was worth because of what it was but I was strong enough to resist and say no. Still undervalued to this day in my opinion but regardless it's a gorgeous book with the perfect mix of red, yellow, damsel in distress with a red dress and a robot attacking a burning city and now like me honing his focus on the pretty blonde #cgc #schomburg #alexschomburg #brickbradford #robot #robotcover #gga #goodgirl #goodgirlart #damsel #damselindistress
Very Very special #schomburgsaturday
post with this beautiful finished fully-colored Schomburg painting that was done for a sci-fi novel 🌌🚀🌟🌚 in 1964!. As you know Schomburg is my favorite golden age artist without a question and finding Original Art by him is nearly impossible! Now to find something as beautiful as this is completely another story! I've always loved aliens as as kid so that makes this that more special to me. It's simply gorgeous, it's a small but mighty piece! Couldn't be happier, was amazed when looking at it in person, not sure how he fit all those details and stars in such a small space. The novel the cover was for is Earth's Last Citadel and they ended up going with a similar but different cover from schomburg, although this one is exceptionally better, maybe it scared some kids. The alien pose reminds me of red skull in cap 74 or a claw cover. This piece is signed 3 times, one on the painting, on the matting and then one on the back haha very cool! #originalart #oa #originalcomicart #alexschomburg #schomburg #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #goldenage #scifi #1964 #painting #alien #aliencover
