Artwork of the Day: Startling Comics (by Alex Schomburg)


by Alex Schomburg

That robot’s in love! Never take your date to a swamp. A human would have understood that.

This is from 1949. The cover was done by Alex Schomburg. This issue had become very popular with collectors both because of Schomburg’s artwork but also because some people think that the robot on the cover was the inspiration for Futurama‘s Bender.
