Rediscovered: Monahan v. Finlay

Kevin Cook adds some thoughts in re: the artist P.J. Monahan, featured in today’s Autograph Hound Super-Sunday Polaris — of the Snows coverage: 

“Probably best remembered for his later All-Story Weekly cover painting for Edgar Rice Burroughs’ ‘Thuvia, Maid of Mars’ — subsequently used as the dust jacket painting on the A.C. McClurg first edition of that novel in book form.

“Look at his great painting for ‘Polaris,’ though.

“I am not sure that he ever topped it.

“In fact, I strongly prefer it compared to the later Virgil Finlay cover painting for the reprinting of the novel in Famous Fantastic Mysteries for July 1942.”
