Only monetarily.

He was available, working in the Marvel offices he could easily turn out work on extremely short deadlines.

Bob Layton has said the same about why he was given so many covers in the 80’s, he lived right near the offices.

We're ignorant and uneducated Ken! I do like these under the table insults. Well, not literally because I'm out of them. Will he go for the hat-trick I wonder?

I wasn’t calling his opinion ignorant and uneducated, he’s actually read the issue so he understands the context of the  cover.

Never liked this cover.

What's that! :whatthe:

What is the artist going for here!? "Look at my massive green pouch"

It's bordering on obscene! 

Where's his blooody forehead!

He has the same hairdo as Superman does in the cover with Wonder Woman though.:bigsmile:

Jae Lee drew that.  I wonder what he thinks of that cover?

Never liked this cover.

Jae Lee's first,  after a number of great issues with John Byrne art. Incredible to believe that this was a hot comic, just a short time after being published, by a then largely unknown artist.

Out of interest,  who were the Sons of Serpent, and why were they on strike? Was fighting Hulk not in their contract or something?

For you children of the 1990s, this Fantastic Four gimmick cover has it all.

Foil wrap, big guns, Sue Storm cleavage (through cut-out "4"), Ben Grimm looking like the Gimp, and more!  

I'm including one of these with my next CGC sub.

All of that, and I'll bet that Human Torch jacket has lots of pouches.

"375th anniversary" doesn't sound quite right unless every issue is an anniversary.
