The Incredible Hulk by Jack Kirby

This one, for me, is right there with Jack's Marvelmania poster of the Hulk (which is the next cover of The Jack Kirby Collector, as I've said over and over---wee psyched I am---like Yoda I speak).  Except this one was probably drawn in the blink of an eye

The Ultimate Villain by Jim Steranko

Another Flashing Swords #1 Hardbound by Frank Frazetta

First is a new version of the painting that I just saw, better than many, and then I've put up the actual dust jacket again.  Still the greatest version, methinks

Chandler At The Neptune by Jim Steranko

This scene has haunted me for nigh on forty years.  When I first saw it, I was a club'n king, but all our clubs in the seventies were dance clubs.  I love to dance, and we had Pandora's, Tulagi's (where they once premiered Michael Jackson's Thriller on a giant screen above the dance floor), and The Rush, that held a thousand dancers on multi-level dance floors

Twice in Time Cover by Wally Wood

1958, and wether Wally was drawing or painting, he did the greatest machinery

Jim Kelly and Bruce Lee by Neal Adams

Enter the Dragon was che cool, but I'd love to see the flick Adams was envisioning, with Kelly and Lee taking on "the man"

Web of Horror #1 Cover by Jeff Jones

First image is big, but unfortunately it's a partial scan of the back of my copy of the mag, which, although currently bagged and boarded, had "a life no ways tame," as Robert E Howard would say

The Complete (Sorta) Four Ages of Conan by Barry Smith

Okay, I left out the Kenneth Smith colorization of these, mainly cuz I cunnae find all four, but please, if you like these, seek out that version also, as every format of this is beautiful, in my opinion
