Again With The Marvelmania #6 Cover by Neal Adams

Bigger, sharper image....and still a blur!  These roughs woulda made an amazeballs cover on onea the DC horror comics (hence the little boy, but I have a conspiracy theory about the old-school editors/management of comic book publications in the sixties:  They tried to squelch barbarians.  Barbarians weren't super-heroes.  They tended to be gory and had way too much testosterone for the kiddies to handle.  Luckily, Roy Thomas and Frank Frazetta and Jim Steranko and Gil Kane had other ideas).  I know there's a ton of other barbaric rebels, I just don't have time between my mercenary duties and piracy schedule to research them all
