Marvel Fanfare 45 pinups by John Byrne, Michael Golden, Brent Anderson, and Paul Smith

Marvel Fanfare 045 Michael Golden Captain America

Marvel Fanfare #45 from 1988 was a special issue devoted to pinups.  Editor Al Milgrom picked some notable artists to contribute this stellar issue.  Michael Golden’s Captain America pinup here is a prime example.  How many times have you seen Cap take down Hydra agents?  Many times, but never like you see it here in Golden’s pinup.

Marvel Fanfare 045 Ka-Zar, Shanna, Zabu by Brent Anderson

Brent Anderson contributed this pinup featuring Ka-Zar, Shanna the She Devil, and Zabu in their native Savage Land.  Zabu is stealing the spotlight here.  I hereby declare Anderson to be the definitive artist for Zabu!

Marvel Fanfare 045 Green Goblin by Paul Smith

Paul Smith drew this excellent illustration of the Green Goblin flying above Manhattan on his glider.  Love the angle of this picture.

Here is the cover to Marvel Fanfare #45, featuring Al Milgrom lining up all the Marvel Universe stars (featured in this issue) for their portraits to be taken.  I’ll share some more pinups from the issue tomorrow.  Nuff Said!
