From DC Women Kicking Ass: J. Bone’s cover for Retroactive: Wonder Woman the 70s

J. Bone’s cover for Retroactive: Wonder Woman the 70s

It's pretty sweet. Very Mike Sekowsky-esque. In fact, if I didn't know better, I'd swear it was an actual cover from the 1970s. There are few comics I love more than DC's gorgeous books from that era, from the late 60s into the mid 70s when you might find Sekowsky, Alex Toth, Neal Adams, Bernie Wrightson, Mike Wm. Kaluta, Gray Morrow and even Wally Wood and Al Williamson on occasion handling the art. With Joe Kubert covers to Russ Heath illustrated stories starring Sgt. Rock. Oh, and a fairly well-known guy by the name of Jack Kirby writing and drawing a few titles. A Nick Cardy cover, a Gil Kane 8-pager, a Sergio Aragones gag strip, Curt Swan drawing Superman. Horror, superheroes, romance, Westerns, sports.

It's not nostalgia. You're not indulging in nostalgia when you look at Picasso or listen to Mozart. Those comics weren't awesome. They ARE awesome.
