Wednesday Cover: Mike Shayne

In 1962, Dell Comics published three issues of Mike Shayne, Private Eye, based on the character created by Brett Halliday. Issue #2 is the only one of these I actually own. Neither the Grand Comic Book Database nor I know the name of the uncredited artist who painted that gorgeous, two-fisted cover, but man, it's sweet.

One website on Mike Shayne listed Edd Ashe and Lee Ames as the artists on these issues. I'd guess that Ames is the cover painter. I agree it's a dynamic image!

Never read any Mike Shayne. Amazing the things I've missed.
