Marvel UK: Spider-Man Part II
Anyway, down to business.
David Johnson has emailed more of those great UK Marvel covers through for all to see. I know I keep promising to set up separate blogs for this stuff - and I will, just in good time. I'm about to throw in the day job and then things will start happening. In the meantime here's another batch of classic early '70s UK Marvels. See if we can play spot the artist.
Cover date: 30 June, 1973
I know it's not him, but the hands look very much like Jim Mooney.
#20 back cover art
Looks like either Ron Wilson or Jim Starlin. The Kirby like pose is classic Wilson, yet the actual line work looks like Starlin. Now someone will come along and say someone totally different.
Cover date: 14 June, 1973
This looks to be Ron Wilson to me, doing his best Ditko impression.
#22 back cover art
Cover date: 25 August, 1973
A variation on the Steve Ditko Amazing Spider-Man #34 cover. If these few covers aren't Ditko then someone was doing a damned good impression of him. My best is that they're the Ditko originals just recoloured.
Cover date: 8 September, 1973
A variation on the Ditko Amazing Spider-Man #36 cover.
Cover date: 15 September, 1973
A variation on the Ditko Amazing Spider-Man #37 cover.
Cover date: 24 November, 1973
Again, the line work, to me, suggests Ron Wilson with John Romita.
Cover date: 15 December, 1973
Classic Romita pose - anyone remember Amazing Spider-Man #50?
Any ideas as to what artist drew what? Lemme know and I'll post the results.
