INTERESTING LINKS: Norm Saunders Featured at Comics Should Be Good: October 15th, 2008

STWALLSKULL'S INTERESTING LINKS

TODAY’S FEATURED ITEM:

Comics Should Be Good at Comic Book Resources has been posting a lot of good stuff lately. They recently did a feature on golden age cover artist Norman Saunders, who I’ve always been very fond of. Saunders is best known as the painter behind the notorious Mars Attacks! trading cards of the sixties, but he had a long history of comic book and pulp covers before that. He’s like a psychotronic Norman Rockwell… I can’t get enough of his stuff. I’m particularly fond of the covers he did for the Ziff-Davis G.I. Joe series (the first incarnation, I believe pre-toy, of G.I. Joe), where G.I. Joe is always portrayed as a goofy, smiling, killing oaf, genially slaughtering Koreans during the Korean War (often with a flower on his helmet). Click either of the images to go to the article.
