KLASSIC KOMIC KOVERS - GIANT-SIZE AVENGERS #1...
Any excuse for a bit of JOHN ROMITA art, and the cover of Giant-Size AVENGERS #1 provides just that. Romita was probably the only artist (at the time) who could follow STEVE DITKO on SPIDER-MAN, and lift the mag to new heights of glory. (He was also great at pinch-hitting on The FANTASTIC FOUR after JACK KIRBY defected to DC, 'til Big JOHN BUSCEMA picked up the reins.)
John Romita - an artist's artist. 'Nuff said!
