Well, this is certainly one of the more interesting covers of the Golden Age, featuring the already bizarre the Eye shooting a power ray at a gun-toting parachutist, who is gripping a damsel in distress by her blonde locks, as other bad guys appear in various action poses, the gangsters are referred to as "attacking aliens." Are these illegal aliens, or space aliens? Wherever the threat originates from, there is something extremely strange going on in this scene. Fans of the Eye are, by nature, fans of the odd and unusual, and are assuredly enamored by the surreal Frank Thomas art on the cover of this book.

Bright yellows dominate this cover which remains in solid condition after all these years. Centaur collectors are drawn to the company's product in part based on their madcap approach to the somewhat predictable content put out by rival publishers, and this auction is full of all sorts of unexpected twists on what an anthology comics could be. If you are looking for something a bit off the beaten track, look no further.
