Funny what you could see in the windows of Bay Area bookstores in the early 1960s. ūüėČ

Those covers are fucking dope, man. Thanks. And the coolest thing is that the story of how Garcia came up with the name "The Grateful Dead" doesn't mention these. The Dead were originally "The Warlocks" and then they found out some other band already had that name. They were sitting around all stoned and Jerry started flipping through the Oxford Dictionary and saw the entry "Grateful Dead ", as in the Medieval English folktales. 

But, Jerry was also a huge, huge fan of the pulps and comics growing up so it's totally possible he saw those and there was a latent memory of them when he opened that dictionary. 

If I was a kid again I'd print those out onto t-shirts and make some money at Dead and Company this summer.

I didn't even think about them with a stolen name when this book had both the Secret Six and the Suicide Squad

More specifically (and more significantly) they were smoking DMT.

Guinness World Record holder: Deadpool (2012) #27. I recommend the Gerry Duggan/Brian Posenh Deadpool run.

I think so. Just a perfect moment, done flawlessly. Sums up everything Superman is and should be. When I first read that issue, I legitimately cried at that. It still moves me every time I see it.

I just got the Artist's Edition in at work and I can't wait to be able to pay for the thing, take it home, and really dig into it. 

Also got New Gods, The Maxx, and Byrne's X-Men to join Romita's Spider-man at home. I love Artist Editions even as my wallet hates them.
