About Bob Layton

Bob Layton was the co-founder and editor-in-chief of CPL/Gang Publications, which published several fanzines throughout the 1970s, including CPL, The Charlton Bullseye, Witzend and Heroes Inc. By 1977, he joined DC Comics, doing inks on titles like 'All Star Comics', 'Secret Society of Super-Villains', 'DC Super Stars' and 'DC Special'. From 1978 throughout the 1980s, he had several runs on Marvel's 'Iron Man' with David Michelinie. He was the co-creator of 'X-Factor' (art by Jackson Guice) for Marvel Premiere. In the 1980s he wrote, drew and inked two 'Hercules: Prince of Power' mini-series and the 1988 graphic novel 'Full Circle'. He also did the designs for the 'Marvel Secret Wars' toyline for Mattel. In 2000, he came back to 'Iron Man' with the mini-series 'Iron Man: Bad Blood'. Layton is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Valiant Comics, and the creator of most of the publisher's popular characters. He was also present at DC, where he created 'Huntress' with Paul Levitz, the Batman mini-series 'Dark Knight of the Round Table', as well as the mini-series 'L.A.W.' with Dick Giordano, which featured many of the original Charlton characters. Additionally, he wrote the three-part 'Batman: Hollywood Knights' for Dick Giordano, and contributed to Stan Lee's "Just Imagine" series. Text (c) Lambiek

Matthias Anyhow. Even if it is a recreation by the inker and even if Comics maybe seem to have a harder stand at 2D I think that this cover is great! Layton did a great job....!

becoolman Autre explication très simple : cette cover récréation d'une oeuvre signée Byrne et encrée par Layton (et dont l'original s'est vendu sur Heritage)n'est pas recrée par Byrne lui même mais par son encreur qui en profite pour en recrée des dizaines afin de se faire du pognon. Cela a le don d'agacer les puristes ! ( il est vrai que Layton (qu'on voit beaucoup en convention) a ecrit "After Byrne" donc n'est pas le créateur original de l'oeuvre mais seulement l'encreur ...

becoolman C'est sans doute la rentrée qui explique cette absence de commentaires. Ajouté au fait que c'est une Cover recreation ... ( J'ai moi même mis sur 2d une cover récréation par Buscema lui meme du Surfer et on constatait le dedain) . Cela étant de facon generale, les comics US n'ont pas la côte sur 2d ! C'est effectivement une superbe cover qui lorgne du côté de Gil Kane pour le Spiderman à terre et l'angle de la prise de vue.
