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!

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

Bob Larkin Action Figure

Coming soon! The Bob Larkin action figure!

Here is Bob in his orange zippered jump suit, ready to draw and paint the day away.

Who wouldn't want one of these????

Next step will be to get it voice activated so at a touch of a button you could hear Bob say "It's a Horror show" and "Live long and prosper" and "Make a long story short" amongst other Longisland-ese sayings.

Love that Bob!

Bob Larkin: Planet of the Apes #23 1976

There goes Bob running for his life! I wonder if Bob was really that buff, or if he exercised some "artistic license" on his loin-clothed figure?
