WebFind: Globo Comico Flickr, a fantastic international comic covers resource

International US Comic Reprints Montage

Norman Scott Robinson, a moderator of the Comic Book Historians Facebook Group, recently highlighted a great resource of non-American comic covers reprinting US comics, Globo Comico – located on the photography site, Flickr.

The resource includes covers of many international reprints of many superhero, humour and adventure comics, including, for example, the 172 issues featuring original non-canon Sgt. Fury stories/art that were published by La Prensa only in Mexico between 1971-1976.

The original material was licensed featuring work by Mexican artists Ramiro Zittle and José Luis González Durán.

El Sargento Furia #125 (1972, La Prensa), published in Mexico
