GASPAR SALADINO in SUPER-VILLAIN TEAM-UP

It was rare for Marvel to try to compete with DC Comics’ domination of the word SUPER, but they did it on this title which ran 17 issues from 1975 to 1980. Gaspar Saladino lettered the last two covers and quite a few story pages. I’ll look at the covers first. The treatment of SKULL […]

GASPAR SALADINO in SUB-MARINER

Here the logos […]

GASPAR SALADINO in SPIDER-WOMAN and SPIDEY SUPER STORIES

He did a fine job working over the painted art, as usual, and I’ll show two pages from each issue to give a feel for […]
