Old School Art That Isn't

Perusing old comic book fanzines, I found some art of the appropriate vintage and a close enough fit for the style that it made me wish Gary and crew had contacted so young or wannabe comics pros for some D&D art. Check these out:

Don Newton, 1976.

Robert Kline, 1969.

Skip Olson, 1971.

Dave Cockrum, 1972.

Great pictures. That last one is from '72? Wow, that looks very familiar.

Awesome. Any of these would have been great additions to the game.

That is some really nice art. I like them all.

The 1972 one is probably by the same Dave Cockrum that co-created Storm, Nightcrawler and Colossus of the X-Men.

It is indeed the same guy.
