It has been such a long time, I had even forgotten that Todd McFarlane ever drew mainstream Marvel characters! But he was all the rage in the late 1980s, and this cover for Amazing Heroes #170 shows that McFarlane could draw the big characters quite well. I really liked these Preview specials that AH would produce. This idea of Wolverine, Human Torch, Captain America and Spider-Man bursting out of the interior pages was a good one.
In 1990, McFarlane produced the cover for AH #179, to promote his brand spanking new adjective-less Spider-Man series that broke all sales records. I never thought of their being a Bob Kane influence on McFarlane’s work…but now I can see it a bit. Nuff Said!
