These are great!!! I would kil to own any one of them. I've had a full run of Turok in my collection for 30 years. The covers were spectacular much of the time and the Alberto Gioletti interiors were only appreciated for their genius by other professionals until only recently. John Romits Sr. and I would often praise Gioletti's work whenever his name came up.

Glad you liked them. I remember seeing some of these and other Dell/Gold Key covers for sale at a San Diego Con back in the 1980's. They were around $300, I'd buy them all day at that price now. Most of these here went for $1000+ at the Heritage auction site.

Thank you very much for posting these beautiful images. I've been a lifelong fan of the Turok Son of Stone series, having been captivated by the painted covers of books handed down to me by my dad. I now have a complete slabbed CGC collection which I'm trying to high grade, and I hope to be able to get my hands on original art soon!
