Cover only!  Teen-Age Romance 042.  I grabbed a couple of the best JVJ Baker covers from Snard's share ten plus years ago and came across them during my recent return to scanning and couldn't help but work this one.

Get an easier look here:

There's some other previously unshared Baker work from yours truly on that feed in the form of splash pages from the sweat magazines as well as a number of the covers I did for the JVJ project.

I'm also back up on the blog, covering mainly magazine material including the first publications of publishers that we would come to know well years later during the goldenage.

Like Harry Donenfeld's humble beginnings in the girlie pulps with naughty little magazines.  The foundation of what would become the DC empire:

Or the first publication from what would eventually become Ziff-Davis, pulp, comic, and paperback publisher, later mulitimedia conglomerate, Ziff's Magazine (good cartoonists in here as well):

Yoc hit me up with our goldenage needs list, so I will keep an eye out when I go through my boxes.  Looking through my old scans, I'd forgotten how much I love golden age comics (especially the romances), so maybe I'll do a fresh one now and then even if I plan on working with mostly pulp and magazine material.

Hope everyone's well - just a brief look around has been fun - like Fett still scanning the hell out of the Charlton's, gotta love it.  The Golden Age was my first exposure to scans (long before I became a scanner) and the scanners here really set the bar in terms of dedication, hard work and camaraderie. The fact that a community of volunteer comic scanners have scanned almost the entire library of comics from the goldenage forward is pretty damn amazing - hopefully the pulp scanning community can mimic the achievement.
