Comics Creators in the Wild 5

Another batch of vintage photographs of comic book creators taken in years past. As usual, there are a number of these that revolve around Stan Lee, probably the most photographed creator of the era.

    1. I think that sign is actually behind the person next to Miller, who I’m betting is John Byrne (partially based on the willingness to only draw Kitty)


      1. I’m no expert on the art market, but I was going to say $20 seems like a bargain for a Miller. Byrne, I figure, was probably even hotter at the time?


  1. Hey Tom. The Late 70’s convention photo – back group is Don McGregor, Jenette, Stan and Len. Front group is Joe Orlando, Paul Levitz creeping in, Mike Grell, Paul Kupperberg and Marty Pasko.
