Comic Book Cover of the Week: Marvels Meanest Man in Black!

The Spectacular Spider-man # 36 from 1988 has one of my fave covers and villains! Tombstone was was one mean mother! As you can tell by this excellent cover drawn by the legendary Sal Buscema he doesn’t take any shit and his favorite past time is kicking peoples asses! That’s pretty impressive for a guy named “Lonnie Lincoln” huh? Well this here was the first appearance of Marvel’s meanest albino and the beginning of his rocky relationship with ol’ web head. As a right hand man for the Kingpin, Tombstone has clashed over the years with the likes of Luke Cage, Daredevil, Punisher and Moon Knight. I always loved this covers simplicity and it was the best first impression of one of Spider-man’s most under rated villains!
