Grooviest Covers of All Time: Ken Barr Made Me Buy These!

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Okay, the title of this post says, "Ken Barr Made Me Buy These!", but to tell the truth, Young Groove'd bought these particular mags, anyway. Still, the following works of muy macho art made it waaaaay easier to part with the buck it cost to buy the mags they covered, y'dig? Barr's covers were always action packed, rip-snorting eye-grabbers. Just dig this heart-stopping handful!


  1. And how about his fanzine and paperback covers? Wow, he was a truly great artist..thanks for the reminder!

  2. Groove, you're just skimming off the tip of the iceberg here. You could do a whole column just on his great covers for PLANET OF THE APES. Or Bob Larkin's POTA covers. Or Earl Morem's. Or maybe you should just do ALL the POTA covers!
