Back to the Future Cover O' the Day

3:25 PM

Iron Man #128
Cover Date: November 1979
Writers: Bob Layton Sr. & David Michelinie
Artist: John Romita Jr.

Layton Sr. & Michelinie transcends comic books with this single issue story arc, "Demon in a Bottle". You have to praise writers who take risks on taboo or untouched subject matter, especially in this medium. The villain in this story is not Doctor Doom, Mandarin or Crimson Dynamo. Rather, it's a bottle of devil juice. I'm sure we can all relate to that in one way or another.
Long time Marvel artist, John Romita Jr. (Amazing Spider-man, Daredevil, Uncanny X-Men), does a remarkable job in capturing Tony Stark's battle with the bottle.

Fun Fact: JRJR is one of the producers of the Kick Ass movie, of which he is also the artist of the comic book with Mark Millar's writing.
