Recent Dorkiness

A Collection of Completely Random Images

So I think Matt Groening said it best:


That’s especially true in the time of coronavirus, and the last couple of weeks at my job have put me through the ringer a bit. So instead of our regular column this week, I’m giving you a completely random assortment of pretty pictures. Hope you enjoy it. And I hope even more that I’ll be able to get back to our regularly-scheduled programming soon…

First up, we have Russ Heath’s cover for Marvel Tales #104:


Next, something I shared recently on Dork Forty Social Media… Leo O’Mealia’s gorgeous, but seldom-seen, cover for Action Comics #2:


Jack Kirby’s illustration of the Biblical story of Jacob wrestling the angel:


Darwyn Cooke’s John Henry, from New Frontier.

    Beautiful, beautiful covers, all of them. Never saw the cover to Action Comics#2, as I’m sure a lot of people haven’t either, and damn is that a shame.
