ABC TV Work


Bob sez: "It was a 26 hour rush for a new AD who gave the job to a illustrator who screwed
everything up. He knew I was looking for work after my NBC stuff. I was working for
publishers but needed the big bucks from advertising TV companyĆ¢€™s. The job was finished
in the agency with everybody watching me paint over my shoulders. It was a nightmare!
            After that they gave me tons of work and free rides back to the house. Plus dinner."

Bob Larkin: Close Encounters of the Supereroe Kind







Another rare Larkin find!

Courtesy of the site "Browse the Stacks", here is the back cover of Italy's Supereroe (Superhero) #3 from 1978, promoting Marvel's comic adaptation of the classic Steven Spielberg movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind - and the adaptation's cover painting by Bob Larkin, of course!

Enjoy!

Bob Larkin: Korku, May 1977


Here’s a rare Larkin sighting! Korku (Fear) was a Turkish comic magazine series published by renowned Turkish writer/artist Suat Yalaz that mainly contained reprints from Warren Publishing’s Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella. 

The collector who posted this cover online had no idea why Yalaz used Bob’s cover art of Satana, the Devil’s Daughter from Marvel Preview #7—the Satana story itself wasn’t reprinted. But whether it appears in English or Turkish, it’s still a great image!

And for those of you who might be unaware, the melty-faced guy is none other than the artist himself—the likeness is amazing! :D

Enjoy!
