Comic Theme Month – Best Cover Artist of the 1940s

by  in Comic News Comment

All December long, I will be doing daily installments of Comic Theme Time. Comic Theme Time is a twist on the idea of a “Top Five” list. Instead of me stating a topic and then listing my top five choices in that topic, I’m giving you the topic and letting you go wild with examples that you think fit the theme.

Today’s topic is a “Who do you think was the best cover artist of the 1940s?”

Read on to see what I’m looking for specifically, along with some examples to get you started…

You have plenty to choose from, including some lesser known names (well, at least nowadays) like…

Fred Ray…


Jack Burnley…


Alex Schomburg….


And plenty of famous names like…

Jack Kirby…


Will Eisner…


Dick Sprang…


And many many more (Win Mortimer, Bob Kane, Joe Shuster, Jerry Robinson, Jim Mooney, Mac Raboy, Irv Novick, Syd Shores, the list is quite literally endless)!

Who’s your pick for the best?
