Paul M has provided me with much better scans of Gray's NATIONAL LAMPOON work than the heavily watermarked ones I had from the official DVD set. Here, for example is Gray's fake movie poster. The piece it illustrated cleverly alleged that Jane Fonda's highly controversial political conversion and radicalism of the early seventies was, in fact, simply a role she was playing for this long-in-production movie!

Here's the original art from HELL'S BLOODY DEVILS, one of the many no-budget exploitation flicks for which Gray did the posters. This was an Al Adamson biker picture with a typical low-budget cast of stars who used to get bigger work (but who by this point often had drinking problems and had to settle). Prominent names in the cast as well as in Gray's painting were former TV stars Broderick Crawford and Scott Brady.
Thanks yet again to Ronn S whose HONEY WEST # 3 (with Elaine Lee)is now in stores! Check it out!

Here's another signed Atlas cowboy tale from our hero posted over at GOLDEN AGE COMIC BOOK STORIES. In fact, while you're admiring how good Gray was even then, make sure to check out the rest of the issue for more nifty art from John Severin, Frank Bolle, Reed Crandall, Tony DiPreta and Don Heck.

Written by Cary Bates, this story originally appeared as a 1971 back-up story in SUPERMAN. While it more than likely wasn't the first Gray Morrow art I had ever seen, it was the first time I really took notice of it and put a name to it. Thereafter, I would keep an eye out for work from this man whose technique was like nothing I had seen before in comics.

Here's a nice tribute to Gray's art from last summer. There are a number of pieces of original art here that I had never seen before! Good stuff indeed!
