The Adventures of the Thing, JUN 1992, by Joe Quesada and Mike Mignola.
This cover is very interesting to me, one for the penciller/inker combo of JoeQ and Mignola- that’s awesome, didnt know they had any collabos. And two because the title and header “#3 IN A FOUR ISSUE LIMITED SERIES” looks so 80’s Marvel but this ish is from ‘92. They weren’t using that header that much then, if I recall correctly.
Marvel Age #86 March, 1990
I’ve always loved Byrne’s work during this era of Marvel. It’s a shame he didn’t draw more of the New Warriors considering Namorita was regularly appearing in his Namor series of that time. You can really see Byrne’s influence on Erik Larsen (amongst many others) in this picture. Also: Robocop
Solar Man of the Atom #29 cover by Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti, pencils by Peter Grau, written by Kevin VanHook. January 1994.

The Spectacular Spider-man, #138 MAY 1988 (I was pushin weight)
by Sal Buscema
Another late 80’s comic that I read in the 90’s, taken from the expensive back issue wall of Neil Z’s, my childhood comic store. Chosen because it wasn’t too expensive a back issue (by Neil Z’s ripoff standards), and because of this awesome cover. I was intrigued- why was Cap punching Spidey?? Who was this cool other spider guy, The Tarantula?
I always thought the Tarantula (aka La Tarantula, seriously) had a really cool visual, and weapon (spiked feet for sharp kickin’), plus a sick mustache, but they always write him silly. The La Tarantula could be badass though, I think.
