My Greatest Adventure

September 9, 2011 by The Belated Nerd

My Greatest Adventure was a DC science fiction and fantasy anthology series similar to the ones that dominated the Atlas/Marvel line in the early Sixties. Along with two other DC titles, Tales of the Unexplained and Strange Adventures, MGA‘s covers were filled with alien and supernatural menace. Although he drew none of the interior artwork (that was done by Will Ely, George Roussos, Lee Elias and others) every MGA cover in 1961 was drawn by Dick Dillin. Dillin cut his teeth on titles like Blackhawk (Quality Comics) in the early Fifties. After Quality Comics went out of business he was delighted to find that DC had bought the rights to Blackhawk and were looking for an artist. It was while performing the duties of full-time artist for Blackhawk (covers and interiors)  that Dillin added a few bucks to his paycheck by drawing the covers below.  Dick Dillin would gain fame a decade later with his unprecedented run on Justice League of America between 1968 and 1980.
