    All of this stuff is interesting, but the Toth stuff is the highlight, "the Crushed Gardenia" especially--great seeing him minimally inking himself on it. His work around this time inked by others looks very good, but folks like Barry "conventionalized" it a little, and I felt Peppe added too many stylistic flourishes. Oddly, I wasn't a fan of the way Toth colored himself in these reprints (like on "Monster Mansion"); I really preferred flat coloring within the lines.

    Lou Cameron worked on some pre-trend ECs, I think, and some of those have been reprinted, so you could look around.

    I want to say that this series (not the Kelly stuff) came about because a cache of Standard art was found--I know some of these stories started showing up on the original art market around that time.

    You know Eclipse did a romance repriint series too, right? As well as reprint series introduced by Michael T. Gilbert's Mr. Monster?

    I was never interested in the Seduction of the Innocent reprints but I used to have the Walt Kelly's Springtime Tales. Not sure where it went or when, though.

    I just found those first three SOTI reprints at my shop earlier this year for a buck each. I have a real soft spot for that stuff. I never get tired of it or find them to formulaic for my tastes.

    I didn't know he was pre-trend EC. I can sure see where he'd fit in !

    Yes, Mr. Monster was on my list to consider and got nudged out. Besides loving the Mr. Monster character, those reprints are also great.

    Kelly had a perfect feel for children's books. His stuff is really beautiful and completely reminds me of early elementary school.

    That Springtime cover is beautifully rendered not unlike children's illustrated books from the turn of the century.

    I'll probably check this out. I already pick up anything Eclipse that crosses my path. This hasn't crossed my path yet but it looks cool, and of course I can't afford the originals.

    I was entirely unaware of this series until now and am truly intrigued by the breath-taking art and unusual diversity of content. I will almost certainly need to add this to my want list.


    Thanks much for the pain-staking write-up and for providing all the scans!

    I knew out of my picks, this would probably be the one that some of you hadn't come across before. That's part of why I wanted to showcase the scans to show you some different stories and art.

    Eclipse had a lot of good stuff. Some of it was different, but their quality was pretty good.

    The fact that this is the Classic Comics board didn't hurt either.
