The INVADERS! Original 1975 Cover Art! John Romita Sr.! Marvel Comics!

It simply does not get any better than this, faithful one! Here is the pulse-pounding cover to 1975's INVADERS #1! All of the greatest Marvel superheroes of World War Two were gathered for one incredible cover scene, to herald the start of this long-running series, one of the first to "ret-con" new tales into the past continuity from the "Golden Age" of comics! Drawn by (who else?) comics master John Romita Sr., this is a perfect example of what made Marvel the number one comics publisher in the 70s, with it's great staging, action, and drama! FUN FACT: Romita began his comic career drawing CAPTAIN AMERICA comics in the 1950s, during Cap's short-lived revival! Can you spot the slight changes to the cover between finished art and publication? Click image below to enlarge!

Added planes and moved planes in the background, removed propellers, enlarged the cover logo, and shifted the swastikas. Why? Why not
