The 100th Art of Diving

Two years ago today I launched the revamped Art of Diving here on Blogger and, by a happy coincidence, here we are with the 100th post!

There's no special theme today, just a random selection.

I couldn't let the occasion go without some Dan DeCarlo Archie artwork. This pin-up appeared in a 1963 Betty and Veronica Summer Fun.

I usually feature Mike Western's Valiant covers but here's some earlier work -  a lovely colour Biggles page from a 1961 TV Express.

This wonderful Viz cover is by regular artist Simon Thorp.

Don't look now mate but I think that Hammerhead wants your fish! By C.E. Monroe.

I'm afraid I don't know who painted this piece from the 1962 Lion Annual but it's very nice!

I look forward to the day when we can ditch our conventional scuba gear in favour of this wonderful Jack Kirby Mini-Cruiser!

And finally, here's Russ Heath's cover to Showcase 27 (1960) that saw the first appearance of the Sea Devils.
