"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

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.

Pretty happy with this bump for #schomburgsaturday 💥💥💥One 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! 😊 #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
Marvel mystery comics 59 - 1944 I am so glad to finally add a Timely Comic to my collection, and finally put #schomburgsaturday on one of my posts! With only 23 unrestored copies on the CGC census, it’s unreal to finally have a Marvel Mystery. For all of you who don’t know the name Timely publications, the company was created by Martin Goodman in the late 1930’s and they would eventually become Marvel Comics in the early 60’s. The cover artist, Alex Schomburg, is considered to be one of the most influential and important artists of the Golden Age. Schomburg would do over 500 covers in the Golden age and work on a variety of different titles such as Captain America, Marvel Mystery Comics, All Select, All Winners, Sub-Mariner, and the Human Torch. In the late 50’s Schomburg left comics and didn’t work on another issue until 1977. One of the most jarring things about the Marvel Mystery line is the terrible depictions of Japanese people. These demonic characterizations came as an attempt by the American public to dehumanize the Japanese threat after the ruthless bombing of Pearl Harbor. It would continue till the end of the war. Otto Binder story, Alex Schromburg cover Jimmy Thompson, Allen Simon, Charles Nicholas and Al Bellman art • • • #marvelmystery #thebronzeage #marvelcomic #comics #comiccollector #comiccollection #comicbookcollection #igcomicbookfamily #superhero #silverage #silveragecomics #marvel #mcu #cgccomics #marvelcomics #schromburgsaturday #marvelmysterycomics #humantorch #submariner #alexschromburg #1944 #ww2 #captainamerica #thedestroyer #schomburg #propaganda #smashtheaxis #allwinners
Exciting Comics #39 , classic Alex Schomburg cover. Here’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
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
Missed out on this exact copy of #humantorch 9 once before. Managed to pick it up for less this chance around. Funny how the universe works. I’m not complaining btw !! Really interesting ratios and perspectives on this one. Like the oversized general Rommel for instance. Very cool. happy #schomburgsaturday
🚨 GRAIL ALERT 🚨 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 it’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 😱!! Schomburg really knew how to illustrate the hooded bad guy didn’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
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

Look what just came back from pressing! Perfect book for #schomburgsaturday Don't need to say much, this is one of the greatest Alex Schomburg covers of all time, as well as one of the greatest Hitler covers of all time. Thank you to @drivinforward for the press and making it looks so sharp now! Go through my previous posts to find some interior shots of this book, it's insane the origin of Hitler and the war itself is told! #goldenagecomics #goldenage #early #alexschomburg #schomburg #classiccover #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #reallife3 #reallifecomics #reallife #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #hitler #hitlercover #usa
Newest and instantly top five in my #wwiicover collection for #schomburgsaturday is this stunning Miss Fury 2 from Summer 1943. Those of you who know me know I’ve been desperately seeking this book for years since I saw it on the #gerberphotojournal cover! They rarely come on the market in decent shape. So many thanks to @gonzamonsta for making this dream come true! #comicbooks #classiccomics #classiccover #cgc #goldenagecomics #vintagecomics #wwiicollector #timelycomics #missfury #alexschomburg #warcomics #schomburg #rarecomics #igcomicfamily #igcomicbookfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomicbookcommunity #igcomicbooks #igcomccommunity #igcomicbookcommunity #igcomics #igcomicbooks #igcomiclords #NFS #nazicomics
Black Terror 4 from 1943 with a monocled Nazi getting punched in the face on the front cover and a super politically incorrect "Krak-A-Jap" toy machine gun for sale on the back cover. * * * #DarrenBuysTreasures #DarrenHasIssues #PunchNazis #BlackTerror #GoldenAgeComics #GoldenAge #KrakAJap #WWII #Racism #SchomburgSaturday
🚨DREAM COME TRUE🚨 Yes that is what you think it is! I did it, I finally managed to pickup Alex Schomburg Original Comic Art. Schomburg OA is some of the most elusive art from the golden age guys to get, and it's not only about the price. It's finding one and then trying to get the owner to let it go which is the hard part. Of course money talks but not to these die hard art collectors as everything is one of a kind, and if you own schomburg OA you're a die hard collector lol. It took some trading of a tough classic cover and cash but it's here now and so worth it. The friend I got it from is an incredible person and long time collector. I've bought from him many times and I know he didn't like to or want to give it up but he did it for me, he said it'll be going to the best home and he was right. You guys know me, schomburg is by far my favorite. His art started me on the golden age path and I haven't slown down since! I have always, always dreamed of owning some original Alex Schomburg art so today, this very special #schomburgsaturday my first but not last piece of Schomburg OA. wow what a way to welcome the weekend! On cloud 9 now! . . So abit about the piece: Its the preliminary art to a comic con program guide/book that alex schomburg was commissioned to do the cover in 1977 for his home town (Portland, Oregon) comic con. I owned the guide more than a year ago and I always thought what it would be like to own some of the art! It's incredible I can't stop looking at it! Only one other time I found a schomburg original drawing, and it was a simple sketch of one character and this blows that out of the water. You basically got im true schomburg fashion, a "cap" like figure, the hot girl, a "shadow" like figure, an "angel" like figure, the hero getting shot at, evil dude with a turban and crystal ball. Because the organizers budget was tight schomburg had to get "creative" but if they were able to purchase the rights of cap etc to use I wouldn't be able to afford this today so I'm really happy it's the way it is. If you swipe you can see a huge signed lithograph of the finished cover, looks beautiful inked! See if you can spot the changes 😉
Building up my Young Allies collection with issue 10, which the Overstreet Price Guide lists as having a "Classic Schomburg Hooded Villain bondage cover" although they prob shoulda mentioned the guillotines as well. * * * #DarrenBuysTreasures #DarrenHasIssues #YoungAllies #SchomburgSaturday #Schomburg #GoldenAgeComics #TimelyComics

Here's my current display wall for #showoffsunday ! Got a nice spread of various Golden Age genres: GGA up top, Schomburg and Kirby Timelys in the middle, and pre-code horror on the bottom. I rotate books out regularly to keep things fresh. And since people often ask, the shelves are from IKEA and hold 5 slabs perfectly. #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #vintagecomics #igcomiclords #Marvel #Marvelcomics #dccomics #lbcole #alexschomburg #goldenagecomics #goldenage #precode #precodehorror #timelycomics #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #jackkirby #gga #goodgirlart #suspensecomics #milliethemodel
#tbt to the first ever #schomburgsaturday that was started last year. Nice to see the little tag by @radcomix and I reach over 300 posts! Schomburg and the golden age have taken over the gram and I couldn't be happier. 2 or 3 years ago there was barely any golden age, all new mutants 87 and 98 haha. Glad many of the collectors on here progressed to the GA, aswell as all the new guys who joined recently. If you still aren't collecting GA, what are you waiting for haha #makeminegold #makeminetimely #schomburg #alexschomburg #goldenageclassics #goldenage #goldenagecomics #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #vintagecomics

Fighting Yank 23 (1948) featuring a classic cover by none other than Alex Schomburg! This book is often referred to as the "poor man's Suspense 3" and you can clearly see why. These don't pop up for sale often, so I'm really happy I was able to finally get one! It presents really well for the grade, too. #alexschomburg #schomburgsaturday #goldenagecomics #goldenage #precode #vintagecomics #comics #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomiccommunity #igcomics #comiccollection #comiccollector #comiclife #cgc #cgccomics #fightingyank
Some close ups and interior shots of the real life comics 3! I wasn't kidding the story of Hitler's life is in here and kids were able to read all about the creation of a real monster. #goldenagecomics #goldenage #early #schomburgsaturday #alexschomburg #schomburg #classiccover #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #reallife3 #reallifecomics #reallife #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #hitler #hitlercover #usa
💥💥💥Enter the "Emperor of Hate" 💥💥💥 Feast your eyes on this all-time classic cover that displays schomburg's craftsmanship on this over the top (literally on top of the world) cover. Wow, Alex did not shy away from showing how ruthless and powerful this dictator was. Gemerally, most Hitler covers show him being beat up or wetting the bed from fear (thrilling 41) but none as scary as this early one from 1942. What's even more terrifying is the story inside isn't just a random fictitious "Hitler's evil plans getting foiled story" but the origin of the biggest villain of all. Yes the origin of Hitler, all the way from childhood, to his art being rejected, the beer-hall putsch, mein kampf, Reichstag fire.... and ultimately to the war itself. It's all there, its the story of World War 2 behind this scary cover of what the whole world would be like if the nazis won. "Real Life Comics" no kidding. Thank G-d for all the brave men and women who fought for democracy and freedom and may those who have fallen rest in peace. shoutout to @dom_uh_nator_comics for the lead! #goldenagecomics #goldenage #early #schomburgsaturday #alexschomburg #schomburg #classiccover #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #reallife3 #reallifecomics #reallife #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #hitler #hitlercover #usa

Traveling for work and haven’t gotten to post my #top3goldenage yet. Until then here’s one for #schomburgsaturday !!! Torch and subby teaming up and kicking ass in this #marvelmystery 35.. Why is subby using a wrench ? Who cares, it’s good stuff right ?!?!
It's #schomburgsaturday and what better than one of the greatest captain america, actually ww2 covers done by schomburg ever....Cap 27!!🏍🔫💥 Just absolutely love this cover! The best motorcycle timely cover hands down! You got the Russian tank corps flanking from the 6, Bucky with a Tommy gun kicking some Nazi ass (for once he's not bonded lol), cap on the motorcycle to Berlin, all with the air support in the background makes for a classic WW2 cover! Glad to finally get one, it's been getting really hard to obtain, no one wants to give them up haha. Had to plan a few things to get this low grade copy but it all worked out! #schomburg #alexschomburg #captainamerica #cap #captainamericacomics #cap27 #ww2 #USA #worldwar #worldwar2 #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #marvel #marvelcomics #timely #timelycomics #bucky #classiccover #ww2cover #vintage #vintagecomics #motorcycle #airsupport #oldcomics #goldenage #goldenagecomics #goldenageclassics

When you pop the Q on #schomburgsaturday 💍 #CGCit #betterthana9 .8 Finally after 4 years I secured my true golden age grail ❤ @talnaiart love you #classiccover #toronto
Got the perfect book just in time for #schomburgsaturday All-Select Comics #4 💥💥🔥🇺🇸🏍💣💥💥. The all-time classic cover of timelys 3 most badass nazi-destroying characters! There's so much going on in this cover it's incredible, schomburg at his best! You got Subby bending a giant rocket shell like its rubber, while being choked out and hit with a hand grenade from behind, cap on his trusty motorcycle of course running over some Nazis, torch and torro gracefuly entering the scene with their flaming antics, and Bucky shooting some Nazis in the face with a tommy gun. All that coupled with the union jack flag in the background on the white cliffs of dover (battle of Britain) make for a classic cover! . . Have to give a huge shoutout to @entalmighty_comics for hooking me up with his lower grade after upgrading, thanks again Rob! #schomburgcover #alexschomburg #schomburg #goldenagecomics #goldenage #allselect #allselectcomics #cap #captainamerica #submariner #namor #subby #torch #humantorch #torro #ww2 #wwii #igcomics #igcomicbookfamily #classiccover #igcomicfamily #comiccollecting #comiccollection #marvel #marvelcomics #timely #timelycomics to
Here's a great alex schomburg cover for #schomburgsaturday one of the best ones imo! Marvel Mystery Comics 44 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 It's actually the last German war cover for the run and the last one done by schomburg (understandable being dated June 1945). Schomburg was known for his over the top Nazi war covers so this is quite the cover to end with! You have the Human Torch and Toro saving defenseless G.I.s from a sadistic Nazi human steamroller (another one of those rarely seen timelys where blood is shown). All the while hitler and goring are overlooking the scene. See if you can spot them without swiping, it's like a ww2 where's waldo! #schomburg #alexschomburg #schomburgcover #igcomics #igcomicfamily #igcomicbookfamily #vintage #vintagecomics #comiccollecting #comiccollection #goldenage #goldenagecomics #marvelmystery #marvelcomics #marvel #marvelmysterycomics #timely #timelycomics
