Wednesday Cover: Son of Sinbad

According to the Grand Comics Database, this beautiful cover is from St. John Publishing's only issue of Son of Sinbad, and is the work of a young Joe Kubert (Tor, Tarzan, Sgt. Rock). The Caliph's Dancer certainly looks like one of Joe's women, and the composition is certainly dynamic enough. Man, I'd like to get my hands on a copy of this 1950 comic!

Great cover indeed. I wonder why they went with "son of sinbad?" Some copyright issue with the movie theaters?
