Virgil Finlay Comics



I scanned these awhile back but I can't recall now which issue of SHOWCASE they were in. Doesn't really matter, I guess, because I'm pretty sure they were reprints there from REAL FACT COMICS ten-fifteen years earlier. Either way, it's two color pages by Virgil Finlay, one of the great pulp and sci-fi illustrators (and a favorite of at least a couple of my readers!). Finlay died in 1971 just as his work was being rediscovered so he probably didn't know just how revered he was by fans even then.
