    Default CBR Cover Contest - Rich Buckler Covers May 24th to 30th

    On May 19th, artist Rich Buckler passed away after a long illness at the age of 68. To quote from Marvel's website , "In 1974, the artist found himself on a dream of a series, FANTASTIC FOUR. For more than two years he worked on stories and covers that included such characters as Annihilus, Darkoth, Doctor Doom, Namor, the Inhumans, and of course, the famous foursome of heroes themselves. That same year, he collaborated with writer Don McGregor on the legendary Black Panther story-arc in JUNGLE ACTION, as well as creating the infamous future cyborg Deathlok along with writer Doug Moench in the pages of ASTONISHING TALES. Deathlok proved to be a point of fascination with readers for many years to come, leading to multiple interpretations of the character and his eventual appearance on film in the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” TV series"

    Here's an example of his work on the Fantastic Four to start things off.... and hey, no Doctor Doom on the cover...but it does take place in Latveria! He worked many years for the big two so there's a lot to choose from. So let's pay tribute to his work and find your favorites!

    This might have been one of Mr. Buckler's last pieces of work. If so, it was a damn good one!

    You're walking along quietly
    There's the sound of running feet
    You turn around the corner
    There's fighting on the street


    I love the frenetic energy of this cover:

    Nice Honoring Theme to Mr. Buckler Iron Maiden.

    When I Started to Put Together My ULTIMATE Scarlet Witch Collection a Few Years ago, This Cover by Mr. Buckler always Stood-Out to Me and Symbolized so much the Early Days of the Love between Wanda & Vision!

    Loved his work on "Panther's Rage"








    True story; when I read this, it was the first time I saw inker Klaus Janson's name. I was sure it was fake, I mean come on, "Klaws" Janson inking Jungle Action?
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!
