Mr. Door Tree over at Golden Age Comic Book Stories put up four Kamen stories as well as a bunch of covers yesterday. Not to point people away, but it seemed germane.

To see this stuff, you'll have to scroll past whatever hundreds of new things Mr. Door Tree has posted since yesterday. Sorry, but his style is a little hard for linking to directly.

I believe Jack Davis is still alive, no?

Howdy,

You are correct sir, Jack Davis is still among the living. Don't know why I thought he had passed. Must of been the "Foul Ball" to the noggin' that did it.
