Comic Covers Sunday: Classic Comics

Another Sunday another batch of covers.  This week we look at one of the great comic book series, Classic Comics.  This would eventually become Classics Illustrated and the covers wouldn't be nearly as exciting.  But the first run produced some great ones.

Let's start with...

Classic Comics #1.  There's something appealing about this that I can't quite identify.  Maybe it's the simplicity of the line.  Maybe it's the inability of the inker.  No matter what it is, it's fun to look at.

Classic Comics #8.  Now this is just fantastic.  Great design and composition.  AND, because the title wasn't standardized yet, the artist incorporated it into the cover.  This is just perfect.

Classic Comics #11 is another cover in which the artist incorporated the title of the book into the page itself.  Stellar!

Classic Comics #18.  This has interesting use of perspective with a giant drooly dude.  I am pretty sure this was different from everything else on the stands that day.

Classic Comics #30.  It's a big fat budda dude.  What's not to like???

That's all folks, now go enjoy your Sunday.
