1970s Team Covers

AVENGERS #158, 1977. Joe Sinnott inks. Boy, that Wonder Man costume is quite an eye-sore, isn't it?

FANTASTIC FOUR #173, 1976. Joe Sinnott inks. Very nice image of the FF and one of their greatest foes.

MARVEL PREMIERE #29, 1976. Frank Giacoia inks. Spinning out of the pages of the Invaders, a very nice cover of the various golden age and pseudo-golden age second stringers.

Ahhhhhhhhh, the FF cover makes one drool over the idea of Kirby retuning to that series - it would've kicked everyone's ass!

As hard I've tried for years to believe otherwise, nobody ever did the FF correctly after Kirby.
Some came close but not enough yet. Sadly, I think Kirby was right not returning to this book. Fans would always compare his new output with his first run and it would also appears like a major setback to Kirby regarding the reasons why he chose to quit Marvel the first time. I understand and respect his decision but I still mourn the loss.
