13 COVERS: A FANTASTIC FOUR Tribute to PAUL RYAN

He had one of the longest runs ever on FF

Paul Ryan died March 6 at the age of 66. Over the last decade, he was best known for his work on The Phantom daily strip. For comic-book fans, however, he made his mark in the ’90s at the Big Two — especially Marvel. He was probably best known for his time on Fantastic Four, which lasted from 1991 to 1996.

And that’s where we’ve decided to focus this 13 COVERS tribute …

(My standard caveat: This is a subjective list and not a ranking of any kind. This is pretty much what I dig and you may feel very differently. So, rather than beef about a cover you don’t see, instead join in the fun and share your own choices in the comments section or in whatever social-media thread you saw this.)
