The Grooviest Covers of All Time: John Byne Made Me Buy These!

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Kick back, relax, and dig on some of Ol' Groove's fave Groovy Age Marvel John Byrne covers.

There's lots more where these came from--got any faves you'd like me to run next time?


  1. WOW! Byrne sure was a busy guy wasn't he? I especially loved his Hulk Annual #7, The Avengers , FF & Ironfist covers. Not to mention of course his X-Men! Loved his Champions & Ghost Rider covers also!

  2. John Byrne is a favorite of mine! When he did the X-Men, Sub Mariner, She Hulk, Alpha Flight and his run of The Fantastic Four. Also he did a Batman Superman series called Generations that was really great!

  3. Wow! Never seen that Iron Fist cover before! Knockout!
    The Black Panther cover remind's me of "Band on the run!"
    I remember The Avengers cover giving me neck ache at the news stand and finally the FF cover..."S Club 4?"
