1984 - Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars

While I've covered the actual miniseries in another post, I thought I'd share some new images I found.


This first image was a promo drawing done by the legendary John Romita Sr. Absolutely love this picture. Looks like the black space would have been where the logo or advertising blurb would go.











This image is the unused cover to Secret Wars #6 by Mike Zeck in favor of the Bob Layton drawn one. The one thing of note on the Zeck cover is the appearance of Kang who was "killed" by Ultron by this point in the miniseries.












Similarly, this image is the unused cover to Secret Wars #7 by Mike Zeck in favor of the Bob Layton drawn one. The one glaring difference is the appearance of Spider-Woman on the Layton cover.










This image looks to be a water-coloured drawing by Zeck and could have been part of an ad or something as there's some space left blank on the right side of the image.


















One more ....

  4. I'm pretty sure that last one may have been a cover or splash used on/in Marvel Age.

  5. I think that the first image done by the legendary John Romita Sr. isn't a promo drawing because it reveals too many things:the new Spider-Man costume, the new Spider-Woman, the new villains Titania and Volcana,... Perhaps it's a homage to the cover to Secret Wars #6.
