In lieu of any meaningful text this week, I thought I'd share with you some recent purchases. What we have here is a collection of cover preliminaries for Funnies Inc, as drawn back in the 1940s/'50s. See if you can guess who drew what, and if they appeared as final covers. I do have some similar preliminaries as drawn by Harry Sahle for the Human Torch, but as they appeared in The Marvel Vault I see no reason to put them up here.
Anyway, detailed text to come shortly, and in the meantime, enjoy this glimpse into yesteryear.
