Nope. It had me scratching my head wondering how I could have forgotten a 1977 Marvel adaptation and so I searched around and came to the same conclusion. But if there had been one, Trimpe definitely would have been the one assigned!

Another 1950s in-house recycling effort from Fiction House:
That top one does happen to be my favourite WTF? comic book cover of all time. I dream of drawing anything as weirdly inventive as that tank / rocketship / motorcycle thingie. (How is she steering it with that drawer handle?) And why is she wearing Marigold washing-up gloves to hold that golden statue of a pubic crab louse... and why IS that purple city erupting in some kind of gigantic pink blancmange disaster? My head hurts.

Eerie #99 (February, 1979). Cover by Jordi Penalva. The Shadow #10 (May, 1988). Cover by Kyle Baker.
The Rook's Star Wars influences aside, it looks like the Eerie cover was homaged by The Shadow, with a flying "car" (including angle of the car) and three occupants, with the one in the center standing up firing a weapon--

Okay, look I know this (below) is a tried-and-true traditional standard stock pose that a gazillion or so artists have used since practically forever, so I won't call it a swipe but
I've long loved this Roy Carnon cover. And seeing it recently in another thread here just reminded me that it always makes me think of Belit on the cover of Conan #100. Anyway it's a chance to post some beautiful art--there, I said it (hey, how's that for mixing threads? )
