Complete Junior and Sunny by Al Feldstein
Al Feldstein (w & a & c)
Long considered to be prime examples of late 1940s “headlight” and “Good Girl” art comics, issues of Junior and Sunny have been quite difficult to find and very expensive to obtain. Until now! Created, written, and illustrated by the legendary E.C. Comics artist/writer/editor Al Feldstein for the notorious Victor Fox of Fox Feature Publications, The Complete Junior and Sunny presents the full run of these comics, along with a historical introduction by Grant Geissman. Although the stories are basically charming, “typical teenage” period pieces, Feldstein’s artwork often pushes the envelope for the time, with titillating covers and often-suggestive images in the stories themselves. It’s probably a good thing that Dr. Fredric Wertham never found out about Junior and Sunny! Seduction of the innocent, indeed!

LOAC Essentials, Vol. 6: Baron Bean 1917
George Herriman (w & a & c)

It showcases Mr. Herriman’s developing style and his move toward a combination of absurdity, surrealism, and art deco.” Volume Six presents the second year of George Herriman’s much-lauded pre-Krazy Kat masterpiece.

Howard Nostrand's Nightmares—CERTIFIED COOL
Various (w) • Howard Nostrand (a & c)

Five stories will be painstakingly reproduced from the rare original art! WARNING: Not for the squeamish–as you can see from the cover Nostrand's gore could be over the top–we can't show you the insides here to protect the Diamond Previews family-friendly content.

Even after being revived by cutting-edge technology, they remain prisoners… of the U.S. government.

As Tarr’s sinister plan is revealed, it’s up to Barry to save hero and civilian alike. Including Greg—who's kinda, sorta both. Outnumbered, outgunned, and WAY out-of-his league, Barry’s chances look slim.
