RIP Rich Buckler

I was given a bunch of mid-1970s Marvel comics when I was a wee lad. They included Astonishing Tales #32 - #35, and Marvel Team-Up #46, all featuring Deathlok The Demolisher!

As far as I can recall, reading Astonshing Tales was the first time I really took note of just who was drawing the book, it was just that good, that striking. It was Rich Buckler. An amazing comic artist. RIP Mr. Buckler. -Mike
