Black Canary, Brave and the Bold #61, and...

Here's Murphy Anderson's classic cover for The Brave and Bold #61 (1965) starring Black Canary and Starman. You know, this particular image of Black Canary reminds me of another sensationally sinuous femme fatale...

Yes, none other than the original Love Goddess herself:  Rita Hayworth! This famous publicity still is from Cover Girl, one of lovely Rita's biggest hits.

Hi oort,

Thank you for the kind words! As for the lack of posts, it's mostly due to a lack of time. But I hope to post more entries this summer,starting in the next few weeks.

Thanks again, I'm glad you stopped by :)

Hi doc noc,

Thanks for stopping by and for the feedback. And yes, you are spot on Anderson's Dr. Fate/Hourman Showcase. His work is just great, isn't it? The way he conveys texture--metal, hair, etc.--I've always found it pretty amazing.
