Bullseye in "Devil Bird"! (Jack Kirby, 1954)

Another terrific 'dinosaur' story-themed story from one of the last, great uncollected Jack Kirby creations, Bulls Eye, from the short-lived Mainline Comics company of Kirby and Jack Simon.


Bulls Eye #3 (Dec. 1954 - Jan. 1955). Mainline Comics.

Revenge of The Big Birds! (Russ Heath, 1967)

Star Spangled War Stories #131, Feb.-March, 1967. © DC Comics.
Script by Howard Liss; Art by Russ Heath

Another great story from The War That Time Forgot!


One of Heath's many great tonal covers for DC.

In a story straight out of Edgar Rice Burroughs, and with the usual terrific art by Russ Heath, I'm surprized that Tommy Smith and his fightin' squadron of pterosaurs never showed up again; he even had a spiffy, Frazetta-inspired origin (below).

More tales from The War That Time Forgot!:

Medal For A Dinosaur!, and,

The Suicide Squad!
