Aw jeez, and now we lost Rich Buckler too. Although I have to be honest and say that Rich wasn't my favourite artist in the Bronze Age, and that as a kid, his constant swiping drove me crazy, I did admire his design sense, especially on Black Panther and Deathlok, which was probably his magnum opus.
Deathlok was a great character, and Rich clearly loved him as much as we all did. Even though Doug Moench wrote most of the series, you could tell it was really Buckler's baby all the way.
Like in this issue, the first one I ever bought, where Rich takes over script and art and threw me slap bang in the middle of the story with not a clue to what was going on, but it all absolutely rocks, especially those first three pages. Can you imagine a Marvel hero treading the American flag into the dirt these days?
