1979 - Anatomy of a cover - Bob Larkin's The Amazing Spider-Man TPB from Fireside


  1. Those Bob Larkin covers were the reason why I originally bought the Marvel Fireside books that I did and so longed to get them all - when I was a lad.

    Those painted imaged lept off the book store shelves (Wordsworth Books in Roosevelt Field, Long Island - I can STILL see it as clear as day): the Fireside books, the Marvel paperbacks... oh... even now, I'd be willing to plunk down serious cash to get them all - even if JUST for the Larkin covers.

    His cover to the Doctor Strange Fireside is one of my all-time favorite Doc images.

    Thanks for the 80's memories, Jason.
    Now I really want to hunt this one down.

  2. Hey ~P~, you're more than welcome. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
