Sam Kieth Marvel Comics Presents covers.

You have to pick 2 or 3, they can't all be iconic/classic

I may do that when I have the time.

I'll help you.  The GR / Cable one is ok, but the Wolverine one is a great homage to the more famous Art Adams poster.  The curly cues are insane on that one too.  Keith liked curly cues like Liefeld liked pouches.

This Wolverine was one that came to mind. I didn't realize that it was an homage. I like this homage more I think:

I forgot about that one.  I don't know if the other one really was (as he didn't put Adams under his Keith), but it just reminded of that poster.

BTW, it is weird seeing Austin's inks over Keith's pencils.  Austin made every artist he inked over look as clean and efficient as they could be.

Really surprised these Marvel Fanfare covers haven't taken off yet.

Although looking at recent eBay results, I guess they're not dollar bin books. Just never see them mentioned

Well, most of the run of Marvel Fanfare have probably seen the dollar bin at some point, so I'm not surprised if there are very few high-grade copies of these available. These are also 4 of the last 5 issues, so I imagine that the print run was pretty low (for the era) on these. Low enough for the title to be cancelled.

I guess, but most of my copies are pretty sharp. they have the better paper stock.
