Wednesday Cover: Madame Buccaneer
Well, buckle my swash!
I don't know who painted the cover above, nor have I read the book – though I'd certainly like to – but as I was searching the interweb for a scan of a different Gold Medal paperback, I stumbled across this artwork and fell in love with it. As a big fan of both writer Gardner F. Fox and lady pirates, how could I not?
For those unfamiliar with the late Mr. Fox, he was a prolific Silver Age comics writer and author of the Kothar and Kyrik sword & sorcery paperbacks in the 1970's. He's best known for long runs on the Justice League of America and the Adam Strange feature in Mystery in Space. In fact, I just got the big, 500+ page DC Showcase Presents collection of Adam Strange tales and I'm really digging it.
