Grooviest Covers of All Time: Dick Dillin, JLA, and Friends

Dick Dillin was THE JLA artist of the Groovy Age. From Justice League of America #64 (May 1968) through JLA #183 (July 1980), Dick's art graced the interiors of nearly every issue, month in, month out. The streak would no doubt have lasted much longer if not Mr. Dillin's passing in 1980. The Groovy Age wasn't know for dependable creative teams, so that Dick Dillin/JLA streak is a pretty big deal, man! Strangely enough, Dillin didn't get to draw nearly as many JLA covers as you'd imagine. Those he did draw were pretty far out, though! Just for fun, Ol' Groove's gonna lay some of his personal fave Dick Dillin-illustrated JLA covers upon ya. And to make it even cooler, I'm spotlighting those covers that feature tons-o-heroes (and/or villains) as only Mr. D. could draw 'em. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for posting these. Dillin is one of my favorite artists and is very underappreciated in my opinion. I especially love the cover to #170. Another great post from a great blog!
