Bill Draut, Black Magic, dreams, golden age, Headline Publications, Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Mort Meskin
In this nearly forgotten issue of Black Magic from 1950, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby again tackled a subject of great interest to them in those years: dreams. Mort Meskin and Bill Draut also contribute to this issue. We saw their work alongside Kirby & Simon in Strange World of Your Dreams and other golden age gems.
