    Sorry to be the nay sayer but how do Johnny, Reed, and Sue look any better in the Adams version? I’m not saying Turner did a good job but Art Adams IMO has only successfully captured the Thing and he doesn’t have a cool Doctor Doom figure in his. I’d call this a draw.

    that’s a real artist at work, because ya know?
    you don’t see the style that Adams created LONGSHOT
    with at all. No mullet, no weirdo cheekbones, just Marvel.
    that’s ART, baby, yeah.

    Its sad about Turners Death. Meet him at a show once. Didn’t even really know him, talked to him about 2-3 mins came back around to the arena and there was aline across the show for his authograph. Wow that was humbling, especially since im a fellow artist.

    The comment I want to make about this paticular issue is that his stamp does not appear anywhere on the cover. I have this issue I wonder since his passing and since most of his covers have the stamp if it will be worth more over time. Has anyone else noticed this?
