That Sands that Change

Here's the final story of Creepy #16, which isn't scripted by Archie Goodwill, but by Clark Dimond and Terry Bisson. I haven't seen this Steve Ditko before so I decided to spread some love out to start out the week, Enjoy.

Amazing Spider-Man #4

Here's is one of the first comic book stories that I first fell in love with. This story was collected in a series called Marvel Collectors' Item Classics #3 and featured the first appearance of the Sandman. This isn't Stan Lee and Steve Ditko at their best, but there are couple of things that I would like to point out.
First is the cover, its one of the first to have a few panels of the story. This might of been Stan Lee's idea, he did before in Rawhide Kid # 24. I still enjoy the cover and if I ever see Steve Dtiko it would be one my geeky fan based questions for him. Who came up with this idea?
Lastly, how Spiderman defeats Sandman, is as Sandman turns into a sand particles, Spidey sucks his body into a vacuum cleaner trapping him until the police shows up. You might think this is a lackluster defeat but it can't be any worse than Spider-man letting the Sandman go and forgiving him killing his Uncle and not having Sandman return the money that he robbed from the bank in Spider-man 3. Sigh, way to drop the ball, director Sam Raimi.

Taking a break from swimming in the Rada's graphic novel lake. Hands need to draw something else.

The Thor #127

Here's my favorite cover all time, by the master artist Jack Kirby. It's one of reasons why I started to read comics ( I had to be 3 or 4 even before I could read I would copy images such like this in pencil or crayon in front of the TV.) I remember little of the story inside but the cover grabs me in by the strength of Kirby's drawing. I know that it's based on Pieta's Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo expect that both figure here are standing. That Colletta's inking is lukewarm is say the least. He simply over inks Thor's arm to the point that it hard to tell if it shadowing or arm hairs. But despite it flaws I still love this cover.
