Albert Bigley vs Sons of the Tiger! 70s Kung-Fu Craze Marvel Madness!

Here is my one attempt to cash in on the mid-70s Kung Fu craze. I lifted this image from the Sal Buscema-drawn cover of MARVEL TEAM-UP 40, spotlighting the tepid Sons of the Tiger in blazing battle action.

I recall taking this to school in Jersey, in the 5th grade, and trying to get 25 cents for it!

No takers. Can you imagine?

1973 Albert Bigley AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Cover Artwork! Intense!

Here is my 4th grade attempt to depict a cover of a SPIDER-MAN comic book from the day. Seemed like Spidey was always spouting off about his current situation, as a way of filling in readers and bringing them up to date.

Boy, I really thought I could handle foreshortening on figures, huh? The "Marvel way," indeed!

I love how I only give the barest amount of background info here, to let ya know Spidey is freeing himself from a sawmill trap.

Gotta find him "before he kills himself?!" Intense.

Spidey vs the Tarantula! Sorta. 1975 Albert Bigley Art! Marvel Comics?!

A 1975 attempt to depict the ever-amazing Spider-Man flying into instant action against his evil foe, Tarantula. Always dug that costume design on Tarantula, as it was a sorta alternate take on Spidey's own costume.
Looks more like Spider-Man is playing a friendly game of roughhousing with these guys, instead of trying to really subdue them! NOT drawn in the magnificent Marvel manner!

Batman and Robin Fight! 1973 Albert Bigley Art! Zalsh! DC Comics?!

Ah, yes. Once again the Dynamic Duo go into blazing battle against various hoods and bad guys. Batman has hit his opponent with such force the poor guy has a cartoon halo!
Looks like maybe this takes place in a firehouse or the Batcave, due to the fireman's pole in the upper left. But the open window and warehouse trappings...
How about those sound effects? "Zalsh?" "Zow?"

ALvengers Assemble! 1976 Albert Bigley Art! Iron Man! Marvel Comics?!

A very large 1976 George Perez-inspired stab at depicting the Mighty Avengers, complete with logos!

And great legs!

Well, except for the Vision...
