The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Giant-Size Marvel, Part Two

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Last week, we dug on a stack of Giant-Size Marvel covers while they were still in their quarterly phase. Well, by the Summer of 75, the Giant-Size mags were phasing out, doing the job of the old "Specials"--reprinting classic Marvel tales. T'wasn't too horrible a thing, though--at least we got one more round of outstanding covers from the likes of Kane, Romita, and Kirby!
