Russ Heath has a good Brain
I had plans to attend WonderCon in San Francisco last weekend, but then found out I needed surgery. So instead of WonderCon I stayed home and convalesced. There's always next year.
Dave Miller, who I'd planned on palling with at the Con, attended and sent me some photos. Bless Dave and his ever present camera. He got me a picture of Russ Heath. Russ, who was born in 1926, is 82 and looks well in this picture.
It ties in nicely with a couple of Russ Heath classics I've been wanting to show. I'm sure these stories of the Brain, from Atlas pre-Code horror comics, have been reprinted a couple of times, but they're always worth seeing. I scanned them from the Marvel 1993-94 reprints, Curse of the Weird #'s 1 and 3.
