Great collaboration between John and Marie Severin.
Newton and Giordano's cover for Detective Comics 526 was great. We rarely got to see Don Newton doing covers. Even rarer was the next issue's cover by Gene Day, published posthumously. Given that Newton would not live for very long, this makes two covers shadowed by death. While the flipped red background on 526 is quite effective, I wonder if anyone has the original art for that background, as it would be nice to see this montage of images in its proper non-negative black and white version.
Bob Oskner. This cover is the only original art I've ever wanted to own.
Anyway, it is cool for you to acquire acrimony of crumbling time on blast this website.

Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
This is the saddest comic book cover I have ever seen. It literally brings tears to my eyes.
This was a Classic Comics Christmas assignment a few years back.
