I spend a lot of time browsing for ads in retro comics and magazines, so why not spotlight some of the great cover art, and learn about a few artists along the way? To kick off, let’s take a look at the work of Tom Sutton and Brian Bolland.
Tom Sutton (also used the names Thomas F. Sutton, Sean Todd, and Dementia) worked as an artist throughout the 1960s up to his death in 2002. More a specialist of the supernatural than superheroes, Sutton worked on titles such as Ghost Rider, Doctor Strange, Vampirella, Planet of the Apes, I Vampire, and Star Trek among many others.
