13 COVERS: An ALEX SCHOMBURG Birthday Celebration

The SUB-MARINER strikes!

Golden Age artist Alex Schomburg was born 117 years ago, on May 10, 1905. He was a mainstay at Marvel’s predecessor Timely Comics, particularly as a cover artist.

So for this year’s 13 COVERS birthday salute, we spotlight the Sub-Mariner, with a selection from two different titles.

Killer diller.

  1. I remember when I was so young in the early 1960s how I would see in some fanzines of the era a few representations of some of these Golden Age covers. They really made me want to have access to them but outside of reprints in Marvel’s “Fantasy Masterpieces,” I didn’t. Today, we are lucky enough to have some of the great Marvel omnis that reprint them.
