The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Rich Buckler Made Me Buy These, the DC Edition

From 1976-1978, DC wised up and turned the amazing Rich Buckler loose on tons of covers for a variety of mags. Were those covers any good? Is water wet? Here's a mere sampling of Rich's awesome artistry. Just a random glimpse of why Teen Groove turned loose so many quarters and dimes on DC during that exciting era...


  1. yeah, Buckler's signature on the cover was almost an automatic buy for me.

  2. Love Rich Buckler! I know a lot of folks think of him as a knock-off when he used to ape the styles of Jack Kirby & Neal Adams. But Buckler's own stylings are clean and dynamic. Deathlok is a classic !!

  3. His covers were extra special when teamed with Klaus Janson!
