I saw this on the rack at 7-Eleven from outside & literally ran into the store to grab their one copy.

That Secret Wars II cover came as a poster in the UK weekly issues of Secret Wars II. I had it up on my wall for years!

Same here, Trevor!

There were some good Power Man and Iron Fist covers by JB.

I bought this one decades ago (as a back issue, polybagged so I didn't look inside) in the mistaken belief that the art inside would be by JB:


This is also a great looking cover:

Whirlwind's pose has a classic Infantino flavor!

The colorist didnít do me any favors on that 113 cover. I drew it as if the figures were brightly lit by the surrounding flames, and got flat, standard colors. Looks like I forgot to fill in the blacks on IF.

Am I wrong or is something wrong with the coloring for ALL the PM/IF covers of that period?  I remember thinking there was something wrong with JB's at the time, and now it's clear that the coloring seemed garish and full of wrong choices.  Looking at the whole couple of years there, I see that other artists suffered bad coloring too, but it's more obvious with JB's because now I can really easily picture good coloring choices in my head for his.
