"The Thrilling Comic Book Art of Alex Schomburg," an out-of-print hardcover published in 2005. Picked up this first edition on eBay. It has a brief overview of his art career, then the rest of the book is filled with hi-res scans of some of his best cover art. He produced over 500 covers during the Golden Age, so I'm sure it was tough to choose which ones made it into the book! Here are some of my favorites for #schomburgsaturday . #alexschomburg #goldenagecomics #goldenage #precode #vintagecomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #igcomiclords #timelycomics #nedorcomics
Bay Area #IGComicFamily - the next San Francisco Comic Swap is on Aug 26! Last time we had 20+ collectors show up to buy and trade with each other, it was pretty awesome. It's from 12-3pm in the Tenderloin, just a short walk from Powell BART, or there's a paid parking garage across the street. Looking forward to seeing some of you there, and please help us spread the word to grow our Bay Area comic community! #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #vintagecomics #igcomiclords #Marvel #Marvelcomics #dccomics #lbcole #alexschomburg #goldenagecomics #goldenage #vintagecomics

Iโ€™m pretty sure this is by Alex Schomburg. Got this from a late 1930s issue of Marvel Science Stories. . . . . . #vintagepulps #pulp #pulpmagazine #pulpart #illustration #illustrationart #vintage #retro #alexschomburg #marvel

Pretty cool #alexschomburg #shark cover came in today. Real Life Picture Magazine 11 (1943). Iโ€™m a huge fan of shark covers so grab them when I see them. I cant find anything out about this book. If you look at image 2, Real Life Comics 11 is the same cover with the obvious change in title. #igcomics #igcomicsfamily #goldenagecomics #goldenage #igcomicbooks #igcomiccommunity #igcomicbookfamily
Here's my current display wall for #showoffsunday ! I rotate books in and out regularly, so I've always got something fresh to look at. Sometimes I stick to a theme, sometimes it's random. Right now it's got a bit of everything, but everything is ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ #goldenagecomics #goldenage #vintagecomics #precode #cgc #cgccomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #igcomiclords #precodehorror #gga #goodgirlart #Marvel #Marvelcomics #dccomics #lbcole #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #lbcolecover #usagiyojimbo #houseofsecrets #startlingcomics #startlingcomics49
Pretty happy with this bump for #schomburgsaturday ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅOne of my favorite books in my collection! All-time classic Hitler cover by schomburg and origin story of Hitler too, amazing book I had the pleasure of flipping through before stabbing. Thanks to @drivinforward for the help! ๐Ÿ˜Š #goldenagecomics #goldenage #early #alexschomburg #schomburg #classiccover #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #reallife3 #reallifecomics #reallife #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #hitler #hitlercover #usa
Just picked this up a couple of days ago. My submission for #schomburgsaturday is Thrilling Comics 44, showing Doc Strange taking out Hitler. Lower grade but has fantastic coloration. #igcomicfamily #igcomics #igcomicbooks #goldenagecomics #alexschomburg
Fighting Yank 23 (1948) featuring a classic cover by none other than Alex Schomburg that has it all. These don't pop up for sale often, but I'm on the hunt for a higher grade copy because this one sold. Maybe I should have waited to find a higher grade before selling it, oops. The new hunt continues! #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #precode #vintagecomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #fightingyank
Exciting Comics #39 , classic Alex Schomburg cover. Hereโ€™s my first entry to #schomburgsaturday . Back in 2011, there were 14 unrestored copies on the census. 11 more have been added since then, bringing the grand total to 25. Hardly scarce when compared to #27 (9 unrestored) or #30 (8 unrestored), but still a hard cover to acquire. I wonder how many more unrestored copies are floating around out there. Cheers! #comics #comicbooks #goldenagecomics #silveragecomics #alexschomburg #nedorcomics #foxcomics #eccomics #dccomics #marvelcomics #batman #superman #wonderwoman #fantasticfour #spiderman #wolverine #personalcollection #igcomicfamily #igcomicbookfamily
3 weeks later and we're still recovering from SDCC! Here are pics of some comic book dealer booths from SDCC. This is just a tiny fraction of the dealers that were there!

#timelytuesday entry! AT LAST....THE MIGHTY DESTROYER ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€ is home!! I flew down to CGC to get a few big and rare books graded. Couldn't be happier, extremely thrilled with the grade on this bad boy! This is a tough tough book, and that's an understatement. One of the most desirable and toughest timely classic covers to get. Only 22 blue labels on the census, that's really low for a timely. To put that in perspective there are more suspense 3s in the census and that book you never see. One of my all time favorite Hitler covers and timelys, it's amazing. I chuckle every time I see it, good old destroyer cracking skulls ๐Ÿ’€ #minehead #atlastthedestroyer #igcomicfamily #igcomics #igcomicbookfamily #goldenage #goldenagecomics #mystic #mysticcomics #mystic8 #destroyer #thedestroyer #timelycomics #marvel #grail #marvelgrail #timelygrail #marvelcomics #stanlee #jackkirby #alexschomburg #schomburg #march #1942 #ww2 #wwii #kirby #hitler #hitlercover

Couldnโ€™t help myself and Picked up another #marvelmystery 56 . This one Doesnโ€™t pop up all the time and i jumped at the chance to have two. Lucky me. I think this cover is possible evidence Schomburg was hitting the doobie once in a while hahaha. Such a crazy scene to dream up. Have a good one #Compulsivebuying #goldenage #goldenagecollectables #timely #showoffsunday #goldenagecomic #humantorch #schomburg #alexschomburg

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

๐Ÿšจ GRAIL ALERT ๐Ÿšจ Here's my submission for #ShowoffSunday - Startling Comics 49 (1948) CGC 5.0. No introduction needed for this ultra classic Golden Age key and one of Alex Schomburg's most iconic covers ever. Incredibly tough to get because collectors won't part with them. I've had a couple chances to get one in the past but they just didn't pan out, so I'm insanely happy to have this and I can't believe I own one. In a pretty nice grade, too! Doesn't get much better than this. Not for sale, this baby is getting locked away in my personal collection. #startlingcomics #startlingcomics49 #schomburgsaturday #alexschomburg #goldenagecomics #goldenage #precode #vintagecomics #goodgirlart #bender #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics

Marvel Mystery Comics 28...sorry for the glare itโ€™s super sunny today here in Cleveland but had to get this in for what I have learned is Schomburg Saturday!!! Easily a Top 5 MMC for me personally this cover really has it all going for it!! Look at that giant tub of acid and that choir in the background ๐Ÿ˜ฑ!! Schomburg really knew how to illustrate the hooded bad guy didnโ€™t he!!?!!! Just imagine seeing something like this on the stands honestly!! #schomburgsaturday #alexschomburg #schomburg #marvel #timely #timelycomics #marvelmystery #marvelmysterycomics #cgc #cgccomics #humantorch #acid #bondage #bondagegirl #swoop #classic #classiccover #mmc #joesimon #jackkirby #goldeage #goldenagecomics #1940s #igcomics #igcomicfamily #igcomicbookfamily #igcomiccommunity
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 ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒš 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
