13 COVERS: A RICH BUCKLER Birthday Salute

The Bronze Age stalwart was born 71 years ago…

The late Rich Buckler — born Feb. 6, 1949 — was a fan fave during the Bronze Age for both Marvel and DC (let alone other publishers). For the last two years, we’ve switched between the Big Two for our 13 COVERS birthday salutes.

This year? It’s DC again — with a selection of 13 COVERS highlighting World’s Finest.

Now, the thing is, Buckler only did 10 World’s Finest covers, as best as I can tell. So how to solve that pesky problem? Add three splash pages!

Hey, we make the rules, y’know?
