  1. It's disappointing that Alan Weiss never inked a full issue of Jim Starlin's pencils. His cover inks and four interior pages for Strange Tales # 180 made for a great combination.

    1. True that... I must have missed ST 180, but this cover is fantastic!

  3. I think you meant to credit John Romita rather than John Buscema for the cover of Avengers #125.
