Making a Splash: Ant-Man In the Groovy Age

Hank Pym! Scott Lang! Pick your favorite Ant-Man, but here they are in all their Groovy Age splash-page glory from Iron Man #44, Marvel Feature issues 4-10, and Marvel Premiere #47-48!


  1. Always I like Ant-Man Pym.

  2. Loving that PCraig.

  3. Sweet! I've always been a big fan of Ant-Man (both versions), and Marvel Premiere #47-48 has to be one of my favorite comic stories of all-time!

  4. Delightful! I always thought that the work Trimpe did on Ant-Man was among his best and most exciting. The Ross Andru story which showed up in the back of Iron Man was a dandy also. It was a smart move to make Scott Lang the Ant-Man to allow Hank Pym to follow his next identity, but I miss the classic a bit.

    Rip Off

  5. The Michelinie/Byrne/Layton Scott Lang issues were standouts in an Age of Shooter that was already lush with so many other quality products. I liked all the other Ant-Mans you presented, especially the early examples of P. Craig Russell artwork. But Premiere # 47 and 48 clicked on every possible front.

  6. Been a huge Ant-Man/Hank Pym fan since like 1970. One of Herb Trimpe's favorite characters too.
