Why, I do believe it's time for obscure Curt Swan comics!
But enough about me, how was your day?
We're in March 1949, so Swan isn't the main Superman artist just yet. However, I could never say no to a cover story...
Don't let the post-WWII wackiness distract you from all the science!
Hey Minifig thanks for posting
I don't wanna seem like a OCD case but I think in this case you could've done without the "obscure" in the OP. I just mean Action Comics/Supes comics are probably what Swan is best known for.
Or maybe you're referring to the fact that these are early works and I'm just a picker of nits
I appreciate what you're saying, but who the hell knows about Tommy Tomorrow? I barely know about Tommy Tomorrow, and I'm posting his adventures right now!
Not many things are better than waking up early on your day off just to take a fat dab and get back into bed to read some real comics. Too many "Storytime of Pain"s lately, or people posting new issues every Wednesday just to bitch and moan about them
I want to take this opportunity, to thank you for doing this

Thanks to people like you name/tripfags, this board is awesome. There's a reason this hobby board is actually beneficial to new fans or people trying to get into comics. Can boards like /tv/ or /v/ make the same boast?
I'm not opposed to Storytimes of Pain; I do them myself, after all, and misery DOES love company. But yeah, people have gotten a little nuts with those recently. Then again, I'm sure it'll pass soon enough.
Did you know that Ken Penders drew several DS9 comics, and Rob Liefeld wrote and drew several Battlestar Galactica miniseries under the Awesome Comics imprint?
As for /tv/ and /v/, those boards aren't newb-friendly, as that would require them to
discuss films & tv, and video games
Also, you missed fatoler - that man reminded me just why I love my country's comics.
Penders' DS9 comics weren't that bad, actually... just a little samefacey. Liefeld's BSG stuff was just mediocre fanfiction.
That's enough Golden Age goodness for today...
... Russ Manning was born 87 years ago...
Golden Age, actually; the Silver Age didn't start until the first appearance of The Martian Manhunter back in Detective Comics #225, November 1955.
... Michael O'Donoghue, who wrote the screenplay for Tarzoon: Shame of the Jungle, would've been 76 today...
... and Carmen Zapata died two years ago.
Well, I'm done for today. I'll be back tomorrow, knock on wood, to give you some more of Curt Swan's early work, as well as the usual stuff.
Weird how like 20 years ago he was the most famous musician in the western hemisphere after MJ, and now he's almost 100% forgotten. Most people under 25-30 have never even heard of him.
