ALEX SCHOMBURG (American, 1905-1998) Flying Saucer Landing, Fantastic Universe Magazine Cover, July 1954


Schomburg, Alex: Alex Schomburg (American, 1905-1998): is perhaps most celebrated by comic book fans for his action-packed superhero and airbrushed “good girl” covers done during the Golden Age. In addition to his comic book art, Schomburg is also remembered for his stellar science fiction scenes, done for pulps, digests, magazines, and children’s books. In later years Schomburg re-created some of his most famous comic book covers as finely detailed paintings. Former Marvel writer, editor, and publisher San Lee has said, “I’ve always felt that Alex Schomburg was to comic books what Norman Rockwell was to the Saturday Evening Post. He was totally unique, with an amazing distinctive style. You could never mistake a Schomburg cover for any other artist’s”
