Journey Into Mystery #20 (1954) - Atlas (Marvel) Comics
Cover by: Joe Maneely
After Man, Lava Men?
Thought I needed to get around to an Atlas cover, but don’t expect a ton of them here. For me Marvel’s 50s work always lacked DC’s sense of fun and whimsy or EC’s intesity. Its possibly the Steve Ditko influence. I’ll always prefer Kane, Kirby or Fledstein.
