The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Bob Layton Made Me Buy These!
Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Ya know, not only was Bob Layton one of the best plotters, writers, and inkers of the Groovy Age (yeah, he's still around and he's still great, but ya know what I mean...), he could also pencil and ink the daylights out of a comicbook cover! In fact, some of the best covers of the late 1970s were produced by Bodacious Bob! Iron Man, Power Man and Iron Fist, and many other Marvel Mags were just leaping off the racks thanks to Bob's magic pencil and brush!
How many of these did you snatch up?
Nobody, I mean nobody can give things a metallic sheen like Mr. Layton! Am I right, or am I right?
Special thanks to Mike's Amazing World of Comics and Grand Comics Database for being such fantastic resources for covers, dates, creator info, etc. Thou art treasures true!
