Xurxo G. Penalta covers Luke Cage, Hero for Hire 1

Original cover by John Romita; 1972 Marvel. Xurxo G. Penalta's website is here.


  1. That's a real piece of work! Great pose.

  2. One thing that's strange about the cover is that the logo is so damn big. What I love about it, however, is that it looks like Luke Cage is about to punch you in the face, and I think Xurxo did a nice job capturing that. In the original, it would be a right hook, in the covered version, an uppercut.
