Black and White Wednesday: Even More Marvel-ous Frontispieces

You dug the last post on Marvel's black-and-white magazine frontispiece art so much, I couldn't wait to share another round with ya, Groove-ophiles! Here's a dy-no-mite dozen with awesome art by Jim Starlin, George Perez, Rudy Nebres, Ed Davis, Pablo Marcos, Bernie Wrightson, Vincente Alcazar, Tim Conrad, Mike Zeck, Gil Kane, Howard Chaykin, and Pat Broderick. Who loves ya, baby?

I have'ta say, that Bernie Wrightson Star-Lord piece (from Marvel Preview #4) is my all-time fave. What's yours? Have I posted it yet? Let me know!


  1. I've always been particularly impressed with that Doc Savage piece, and make a point of looking at it extra-close whenever I pull that issue out.

  2. Love the Gil Kane. Interesting that the other comment is from someone with the same initials as me.

  3. WOW!!
    It's hard to choose there were so many! I've always loved Gil kane's art, o Conan Red Sonja get my vote! Loved all those inside Rampaging Hulk/Hulk & Marvel Preview & Monster's Unleased, Vampire Tales as well! Thanks for posting these beautiful pieces!

  4. I'm with you Groove! I've stared at that Star-Lord image so much, I think I see it in reverse when I close my eyes!
