Planet of the apes ( Marvel magazines )

Planet of the apes!!! I have the entire Marvel magazine run and I love every single issue and cover. Just to prove my point....I once traded Detective comics # 92 for the entire series in one shot. Over the next week or so I will show you some of my favorite Planet of the apes covers...

Like this one here by Bob Larkin I believe. More on that trade in the near future

DRACULA - Gene Colan

Nobody but nobody did a better Drac than Colan...the guy was a phenom. In that he never ever stuck to the prescribed house style of Marvel comics. Instead , using his God given talent to bring figures forth from shadow Gene created the most eerie atmpospheric images and was perfect for this comic book. He is a legend...Like Kirby and Buscema. He will be missed.
