I remember seeing this cover in the comic shop, and it just blew my mind. Even today, I think it holds its own.

Talk about a classic, iconic cover. It does hold his own and I think Layton's inks have a lot to do with that given how early it was in JRjr's career :)

I know a few collectors (myself included) who have been searching for this little gem. It's a fine addition to any collection, even one as impressive as yours. Congrats.

Killer! Count me as another who fondly remembers this cover. JRJR was channeling Perez when he did this so many characters. Too bad the logo is covering up some more characters. Would love to see who is behind it. Congrats!

Wow does this bring back memories. One of my first comics I ever read back in the early eighties. Grandmaster vs. Death, a classic! Fantastic cover art, bravo!

Perez may be the King of Krowded Kover scenes, but JR Jr. & Layton gave him a run for his money with this one.

One of the very best of Romita Jr. adding to this the superb inking job by Layton. The perfect match for a Champions cover! You're once again a very lucky man David! Best to you.
