More Rare Marvel UK Covers! The HULK and the Defenders! 1975 Ron Wilson Art!

Another little-seen piece of cover art, this time from rampagin' Ron Wilson (penciller) and mighty Mike Esposito (inker)! These alternate covers where done for the many overseas reprints of domestic Marvel material, and were an added treat for comic fans in those countries! The changes were done not only for aesthetic or sales purposes, but also to meet the needs of different foreign formats and sizes! Here is the cover for the 1975 issue of the long-running UK imprint, MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL, which spotlighted a dynamic DEFENDERS tale! Click to enlarge!

BONUS! Click below to enlarge this fabulous 1976 UK cover (along with it's American counterpart), believed to have been produced by Ron Wilson and Frank Giacoia!

I have that issue of MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL!! Great to see the original artwork... there were some great covers on that comic. Especially loved the ones by Pablo Marcos.

Thanks for posting the originals Al!
