the holy grail of classic golden age covers! A Lou Fine masterpiece (2/40)
Well. So here it is. The single most coveted, most revered, most gloriously insane and delightfully over-the-top cover of the Golden Age by one of the finest artists ever to grace the medium. There's barely any point in discussing or writing about this splendid beast, but I guess we'll have to try, otherwise this listing will have to be filled up with recipes and emojis. So, where do we even begin? Maybe what's worth discussing is how immaculately this extraordinary image captures everything about the twilight, otherworldly realm of early 20th century pop fiction, how it manages to perfectly meld Burroughsian adventure, pulp science fiction, monster horror, boys' own action, and epic imagination into one astoundingly illustrated piece.

The intricate lines laid down by Lou Fine, indisputably the first truly great cover artist of the comics, provide supple weight and graceful movement to what could otherwise be a crude and garish image, giving the robots a fierce metal menace reminiscent of Willis O'Brien's majestic King Kong, and the immense motion of Samson at center rivals the heft of Hal Foster's Tarzan, all taking place in a backdrop that practically screams of detailed modelwork by an unusually talented boy. This image burned its way into the brains of all the young readers who first saw it, and has branded itself on the hearts of comic collectors young and old for nearly a century. This issue may not be a key, a first appearance, or the inspiration for a big blockbuster movie, but for truly discerning collectors, there is nothing else. This is the Big One, the Grail, the Monster. It never fails to delight and inspire, and has yet to be rivalled. So.
Fantastic Comics #3 is a personal favorite of the staff here at Metropolis, and this stunning cover art should hint as to why, this issue is simply stuffed to the brim with Golden Age goodies. This book has a classic Lou Fine cover illustration and, in such expertly restored condition, we are very confident this book will find a good home with a collector who knows his GA classics.

Joe Simon cvr
Larson Copy
Highest Graded
When Victor S. Fox and his business partner Bob Farrell needed content for their fledgling publishing house, they turned to the red-hot Eisner/Iger studio. The partnership got off to a rocky start thanks to a lawsuit incurred due to their alleged plagiarizing of Siegel and Shuster's Superman. To distance themselves from the scandal, Fox severed ties with Eisner/Iger and began anew with his own stable of artists and writers, including Joe Simon. The company hit their stride in the late 40s with, among others, the much-admired Fantastic Comics, which introduced Samson and other superheroes to the public at large. While many covers were provided by the more obscure staff artists of the day, all were full of the coarse, overwhelming power of the Golden Age.

Inspired by DC's top-selling smorgasbord of heroes, the Justice League of America, Stan Lee, and Jack Kirby decided to go one better when tasked with creating a copycat title for Marvel. Instead of a mashup of existing heroes, Lee and Kirby struck upon the novel concept of creating a super-family, allowing young readers to instantly identify with the day-to-day squabbles and growing pains of the protagonists while still enjoying liberal doses of heroism and derring-do. This dynamic and historic first issue hit the ground running with an action-packed cover and one of the most thrilling and engrossing origin stories of the era.
This dynamic and historic first issue of Fantastic Four hit the ground running with an action-packed cover and one of the most thrilling and engrossing origin stories of the era. One can't really do much better than pairing the comic that launched the Marvel media empire with the signature of the man who has steered the ship of the said media monolith with such a sure hand over the past six decades. 'Nuff said.
